Olajumoke Slays in Layo G. Lookbook

Olajumoke Orisaguna‘s fashion star is on the rise! She’s starring in a Layo.G lookbook and here’s her first look.Olajumoke for Layo G_BellaNaija

The luxury brand “provides edgy, tailored clothing for modern day women… pieces that take women from the office to a lounge, from day to night, from professional to chic and beyond.”

The brand stated it’s inspired by Olajumoke because

“she represents the Layo G woman in so many ways. The strong woman who does not let obstacles thrown her way get her down, but instead hustles to overcome them. We admire strong women who are grinding everyday in their own way. Whether you are a breadseller or a supermodel, a CEO or an executive assistant we here at Layo G believe every woman is a boss.

Olajumoke absolutely slays in our Flared Collar Jacket and her natural confidence shines through. More to come from our amazing shoot!”

Last weekend Olajumoke also had her first ever runway debut. Here she is strutting the runway at The President’s Cocktail in Lagos Polo Club.

    • nene+ February 24, 2016 at 10:24 am

      I like this girl!! She will go places…
      You know what? her story is such that artisans who heard her story can now manage to smile and be diligent hoping that someday they would be heard.

      Weldon Jumoke and many thanks to TY, I have a few questions to other celebrities who have never helped any human being….. Genevive on my mind….i would love to know if that madam has helped any one? Please reply if you know any humanitarian thing she and many others have done so i can duly apologise. Ini Edo,Tiwa,Mercy J,Riri,Toke,Omoni,Jumbo,Yemi Alade,……..not just showing us family vacation,snow rides,and clothes but what you have done for the society….

      As for me i have done quite a few and hoping to do much more.

        Genevieve had a very hard time especially giving birth so young. It’s made her quite hard and introverted so she doesn’t really feel she owes anyone anything… btw what celebrities do or don’t do might not be so important if we the non celebrities would be our brother’s keeper…

      • Jd February 24, 2016 at 1:14 pm

        You need to consider that TY didn’t set out that day looking for Jumoke. What she did was to open her heart to going in the direction of popular opinion about Jumoke’s potential as a model. Now, because you do not hear of the good deeds of other celebrities like Genevieve and co doesn’t mean they are not contributing to bettering the lives of people around them or people they encounter as they go about doing their work. What makes TY’s so special is that it was pure serendipity facilitated by social media and not every celebrity will have that type of opportunity. TY has inspired a lot of us with the way she considered popular opinion and made time out to pursue the good thing of putting Jumoke in her path. May we all the take such opportunites when they arise – with or without social media attention.

    I like how this girl is going from one level to the other. She photographs well and will do very we’ll f she is managed properly.

    When people worry about Jumoke being taken advantage of by her management I see their point and she needs to be protected, but my worry for Jumoke is the tons of relatives who will seek to take advantage. Sometimes family can be worse than outsiders. There are probably relatives right now making plans based on the money Jumoke has earned And is yet to earn. There are probably relatives lurking, whose sense of entitlement makes them feel they should be taken care of by Jumoke and they will manipulate and make this girl feel guilty for the success that has come her way if she doesn’t yield to their demands. I fear that uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws from far and near will bombard this girl to the point of suffocation and Will stop at nothing to milk this girl of everything that she is worth. I hope she finds the courage to set boundaries and say NO.

    I also think an interview with jumoke’s husband would be a good idea. I would like to know what’s going on in his mind as regards his wife’s newfound fame. I noticed in her interview she said her parents and friends were very happy for her, but I didn’t hear anything about her husbands reaction. I might have missed it.

    I wish you the very best Jumoke. In as much as a lot of people now envy you, not a single one of those people would say no to your kind of favour in their own lives they will gladly embrace it…..so ride on, shine on and God be with you every step of the way.

  • Nonamespls February 24, 2016 at 11:45 am

    Really happy for her! I am not sure of her literacy level, but i think she needs to up that a bit learn to speak properly, read and write( if she can not do this already). So she can hold her own and not get hoodwinked. Wish you all the best Olajumoke!

  • fan February 24, 2016 at 11:49 am

    @nene,bring the list of those you have helped first before you start calling names.stop talking down on people you know nothing about their personal lives.

    • nene+ February 24, 2016 at 12:04 pm

      Fan just keep fanning no word for you. You don’t make sense, go back and read what i wrote…

  • Brizola February 24, 2016 at 12:09 pm

    Beautiful Lady… I just love her face. That being said, we all know Jumoke”s story is the typical grass to grace story. It gives us hope and something to live for. Being a realist that I am, Jumoke is not a model, all this razzmatazz is because of TY’s influence. The first picture was amazing but from a professional outlook without bias she doesn’t have the features of a model, face structure, composure, angles, body structure, height and she is not so photogenic. If she goes to new York or any other part of the world, she won’t be selected. Is being a model her life long dream? does she enjoy modelling or is she seeing this an opportunity to reach her goals? One thing is helping someone another is pushing her into something she doesn’t understand. I don’t want to be a kill joy or be termed a hater, I think TY should help her realise her dreams and give her a platform to do that. Modelling is short term whether we like it or not. I would like to see her be who she wants to be and excel in that. Maybe own a bakery or her business. My two cents. God bless each an everyone that has made an impact in her life.

    • Tee February 24, 2016 at 4:04 pm

      Open a bakery? Like seriously?so just because she was hawking bread meant her dream was to be a bread seller or a bakery owner or whatever u call it.Did u stop to think circumstances made her become a bread seller?so why open a bakery for someone who’s Dream initially was to be a hair dresser.if u look at it well,being a model,hairdresser,same nooni.So she’s still in line.BTW, Models are not born to look like a model,they are made to look like a model.

    • AsktheProfessional February 24, 2016 at 4:06 pm

      Brizola, thanks for saying this. Precisely my sentiments! While I love her story and happy for her success to date, i have to be honest, speaking from a professional pov she does not have the features of a model. Height is one thing but they are other requirements to fit the bill of a model. I truly believe her endeavors needs to be channeled in a career that will be more sustainable for her identity, her trueself. One that will benefit her + family years to come.

      On another note; new fashion designers please, please, please refrain from attaching the word “luxury” to your brand especially if you are a young brand. I cringe everytime I see this because you do not understand the concept and true meaning of luxury. While its great to aspire to be a luxury brand, you have to earn it. And that is earned through a number of different qualifiers, of which one is TIME (years of consistently growing a brand that is done with superb craftsmanship). You can not decide to open a clothing line today and all of a sudden become luxury. And in this brand’s case; I checked your product offering and while I commend your hardwork in creating beautiful trendy clothes, truthfully its not luxury. But you can get there if you invest in creating quality products over time. Wish you continued success in all your endeavors.

    na God win my sister @JUMOKE. Hey guys check out this AMAZING Gospel SONG from a Nigerian student studying in Romania youtube.com/watch?v=VT_WYcY2Mcg

  • SuperNova February 24, 2016 at 12:45 pm

    @Brizola, I see your point but I’ll also like to remind you that in all we do, nothing is really our doing. There’s always the ‘God factor’ that turns a seemingly unexpected situation into pure glory. He has opened doors where she never imagined herself peeping into. What if this is only a gateway to her true calling. One has to start somewhere and the door has been opened, literally. Let’s wait and see what miracles follow. All Glory is to God! Alhamdulillahi.

  • d’roks February 24, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    @Brizola let her make all the money she can from modelling while the buzz is on..she can then move to other things later. Who says she can be a model for life? Dis babe is learning so fast..

  • just bored February 24, 2016 at 1:08 pm

    Too early to judge. Time will tell… Money changes people.. Trust me.. I know from experience
