The tailored edit has been developed by Omoyemi Akerele with Simon Burstein, who discovered both brands on a trip to Lagos for the ever-growing Lagos Fashion Week 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 travellers, 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.”
