    Not feeling her in this photoshoot oh, she dresses better in real life. This looks like a typical orange couture handwork. Always making someone look weird all in the name of ART.

      You are the weird one – she looks fabulous – and orange culture is an amazing brand – anonymity allows foolish comments like this

    “she’s a modern day style icon”

    I have never heard or seen this woman before.
    I dont see a style icon in her at all. she doesn’t exude grace or glam.
    is she well dressed, yes but is she a style icon? NO.

      This Bruno is completely out of the loop. I don’t understand the need for people to comment especially when they are clueless.
      Lisa Folawiyo is about a decades worth of popularity in Naija fashion. She is the inventor of embellished Ankara. Though now many others copy so she is re inventing her style.
      The only other reason why you might not know her is if you’re razz. …hmmmm….Lol.

      Ehm…she is DEFINITELY not the “inventor” of bling on ankara. Other well-known designers and dressmakers had been doing it before her. However, she certainly popularized it with a lot more hype especially with the advent of social media at the time that she kinda started.

    Bruno shut up please. You CLEARLY know nothing about the Nigerian Fashion industry if not you’d know of Lisa, her amazing personal style as well as incredible design skills. Later you’ll go on and on about how you know about fashion. There’s a burgeoning industry in YOUR country.
