Lisa Folawiyo Is In Love With Ankara, and We Love Her For It!

Specialising in the art of the West African fabric, Ankara, Lisa Folawiyo of the label Jewel by Lisa is proud that she’s made the traditional textiles of her native Nigeria a must-have luxury item . Each of her garments boasts handcrafted construction, intricate beading and fine tailoring.

Despite her lack of formal training in fashion design,  Folawiyo’s styles have captured the attention of several publications such as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, BBC, MTV, and of course, Eluxe! The brand has also been well received and worn by stars such as Lucy Liu, Thandie Newton and Solange Knowles, and has recently collaborated with L’Oreal (see main pic).
