On Sunday 9th February 2014, the subsidiary of Polo Limited, Polo Avenue launched in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the theme of the launch was celebrating “Love and Beauty“. Polo Avenue hosted its friends and guests like Folake Folafin-Coker, Lisa Folawiyo, D’Banj, Lanre DaSilva Ajayi, Bola Balogun, Joseph Benjamin, Mo Abudu, Veronica Ebie-Odeka, Agbani Darego, Nkiru Anumudu and others to an elegant affair.
Showcasing its leather goods, shoes, and fashion accessories from leading international luxury brands such as Roberto Cavalli, Balenciaga, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Dolce & Gabbana among other brands the launch was indeed one of the highlights in Nigerian fashion.
Polo Limited’s Executive Director, Jennifer Obayuwana in a brief speech, stated “the launch of Polo Avenue’s flagship store is timely with the increasing demand of authentic luxury products by Nigerians – we get our products directly from the designers. Also, Polo Avenue will solve the problem of lack of easy access to seasonal products. Customers can now by luxury products immediately without having to travel abroad. Polo Avenue gets all the products the moment they are launched in Paris and Milan”.
