Handcraft is at the heart of the brand as Lisa Folawiyo’s craftsmen carefully embellish each piece by hand. Lisa Folawiyo has a strong eye for tailoring and fit, making her pieces both flattering and feminine. Together with the Ethical Fashion Initiative, Lisa Folawiyo presented her collection on Altaroma’s runway and at Biffi Boutiques’ Vogue Fashion’s Night Out.
