    Toju Foyeh and Lisas Jewel by Lisa are on some cheap drugs.
    HOW established are you?And how much of a household name are you guys to justify tagging your “can be found anywhere” “creations” such rip off prices.
    Please Lisa one or two shows abroad and having some who patronize you is no justification for ripping people off.At the end of the day all you do is stick stuff on ankara.Don’t crash before you have truely taken off all in the name of greed.
    My big question for you is if you will be here in another 5 years?
    Will you?
    As for toju
    yeah..no comments

    haba. do you know how much the fabric, zippers, embroidery stones/pieces cost? and not to mention shipping and handling to wherever it’s stocked before it’s shipped out to the end consumer. JBL and TF will definitely charge more because they don’t have as much capital as H&M and Zara to sell things cheaply.

    A bit on the pricey side, isn’t it? Nice concept though. I just wish it was more affordable.
