Style House Files (SHF) in collaboration with Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) recently partnered with OKAPI for a pop-up with Nkwo and GREY, and The Place London with AAKS and Lisa Folawiyo. NEPC remains at the forefront of championing the cause of Made in Nigeria apparel to thrive by providing a myriad of opportunities for capacity building and access to markets.
Speaking on the collaboration, Hanneli Rupert, Director Okapi, and Merchants on Long said:
“Okapi is always excited to be able to work with other luxury brands from around the African Continent. Nigeria has such a wealth of talent and quality and yet like South Africa also sometimes struggles to get the exposure it needs in the global market so pop-ups like these are a great way to showcase what is available.”
Simon Burstein commented:
“Both Lisa Folawiyo and Akosua Afriyie-Kumi are world travellers, with great personal style and lovers of fashion which transcends through their designs. This alchemy, combined with local craftsmanship, results in beautiful and exotic collections”
Nkwo and GREY are available to shop at Okapi; 40 Eaton Terrace, London, SW1W 8TS. AAKS and Lisa Folawiyo are available as part of the Lagos Fashion Week pop up from July to September and available to buy in store at The Place London, 59 Brook Street, W1K, as well as online at theplacelondon.co.uk.
