New York based fashion designer Lola Faturoti is simply a designer’s designer. In 2007, we introduced you to Faturoti in an exclusive interview where she discussed how she broke into the fashion industry. Since then, we have been waiting to see Faturoti really expand her brand into Africa’s fashion markets and also gain even more buzz than she had at the time. The designer recently took a step towards that direction with her showing at the just concluded Africa Fashion Week. Every single design she showed, gets a “gotta have, musthahave” gasp from us. Luckily, she can be reached at www.lolafaturoti.com for stockists information for some great shopping!
