Creative Director and Founder of Lisa Folawiyo Studio, Jewel By Lisa and the J Label, over the course of 11 years, has forged a brilliant career and remained true to herself, moving to the beat of her own aesthetic drum. Her critically acclaimed and commercially successful collections have been worn by celebrities across the globe including Tiwa Savage, Rita Dominic, Falana, Solange Knowles and Lucy Liu to name a few.
