Omoyemi Akerele BOF500

The Business of Fashion has unveiled a list of 500 outstanding people shaping the global fashion industry BoF500, and guess which Nigerian Lawyer turned Fashion Consultant made the cut – It’s none other than Founder and Artistic Director of Style House Files, Omoyemi Akerele.

The BoF500 list is a new multi-channel initiative curated by editors of the Business of Fashion outfit and powered by social media that examines the people shaping the global fashion industry.

The list consists of blue-chip titans who helm the industry’s mega-brands and daring young upstarts whose fashion stars are fast rising. They are disruptive entrepreneurs building the next wave of $1 billion start-ups and opinion-leaders whose points of view attract followers, online and off. They are power princesses, chic sheikhs and supermodels, as well as discreet, behind-the-scenes catalysts who spot and support the industry’s top talents.

Omoyemi, who is also the founder of Lagos Fashion & Design Week, was listed alongside Iman, designers Alexander Wang, Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen CEO Jonathan Akeroyd and others. {See full list here}.

A huge congratulations to her on her big achievement. We wish her the best.

    It’s especially exciting because she just gets on with it — no airs and graces about her. Seest thou a man…

    Congratulations! So proud.

    Out of all the ‘fashion consultants’ in this country, Yemi is one of out maybe two or three that actually knows her onions and gives her clients value for their money. She has helped businesses expand and grow and is a titan in the fashion industry. I applaude her achievements.
