Thank you @clanrtw #she #thepowerwomancampaign 
Reni Folawiyo (Mrs F), a VETERAN in the field of fashion, arts and design. She has successfully redefined fashion luxury for Nigerians with her concept store ALARA out of which she also sells custom-made authentic African furniture - a long-time passion of hers. ALARA taking on it’s true meaning of “wondrous performer” is also home to NOK, her quaint ethno fusion restaurant which gives a nostalgic feel of vintage West Africa. 
ALARA is West Africa’s first fashion luxury and lifestyle concept store, and has been likened to global concept stores including London’s Dover Street Market and Paris’ Colette. Mrs F’s continuous commitment to promoting African luxury and lifestyle through the empowerment of local artisans provokes new ideas and narratives of what Africa is and who Africans truly are. She is currently listed on The BoF500 🎯  #GOALS

Industry: CREATIVE, RETAIL, LIFESTYLE
