HER looks at the sharp and bold voice women express through their designs, style and art. These are the women who inspire me to keep creating and share my voice each day.
Lisa Folawiyo is all about prints, bold shapes and details. Her label Lisa Folawiyo & Jewel by Lisa, was started in 2005 and has showrooms in both Nigeria and New York with collections sold in the UK, the US, South Africa and Nigeria. Taking inspiration from Ankara prints and classic menswear, Lisa creates womenwear that is the perfect balance between masculinity and feminity while never looking boring or like anyone else.
Why did I pick Lisa to kick off the HER series? Because Lisa's garments are far from "safe." She makes clothes for the woman that isn't afraid of wearing multiple colors and prints in one outfit. The woman that likes to take risks, have fun and doesn't take clothes too seriously. Lisa's voice is loud and unique and that is nothing but inspirational.
If you see me being more daring with my prints, you'll know why =).
