This Summer, customers will be given the chance to journey from Bolgatanga Ghana to Eastern Nigeria; with a carefully curated edit of the best brands, chosen exclusively for The Place London by @StyleHouseFiles Founder, @OmoyemiAkerele.
The pop up, which will run from the 6th of July to September 2018 will introduce two new brands to The Place London; Womenswear designer Lisa Folawiyo with the ‘Kwenu’ collection, as well as handcrafted raffia bags by Ghanian brand, AAKS.
The tailored edit at the Place London has been developed by Omoyemi Akerele and Simon Burstein (Founder, The Place & Former Chief Executive, Browns), who discovered the brands on a trip to Lagos for fashion week and Milan for Pitti Super and was inspired to expand the offering to reach the discerning The Place London customer.
Simon Burstein commented, ‘Both Lisa Folawiyo and Akosua Afriyie-Kumi are world travelers, with great personal style and loves of fashion which transcends through their designs. This alchemy, combined with local craftsmanship, results in beautiful and exotic collections”
AAKS and Lisa Folawiyo will be available to buy in store at The Place London, 59 Brook Street, W1K, as well as online at https://www.theplacelondon.co.uk
The Place London pop-up will officially open on the 6th of July, 2018.
