OUR ETHOS

We do our best to source our resources with passion. We aim to use suppliers who demonstrate ethical values and respect for their employees; the universe and it’s vast resources. We believe that to get the best from the universe, we have to treat it well, so, where possible, we source resources that are environmentally sustainable and organic.

OUR DESIGNS

Our high end designs are created employing personally crafted, one-of-a-kind and custom concept fabrics. They are crafted using luxurious limited edition materials created solely for us by our suppliers. We also engage expert embroiderers and ensure that our embellishments are of the highest quality. Our designs are hand made, organic and they cater for women of distinction globally. They are bold, classy and head turning with their array of vibrant colours and textures.

Our designs are made from a healthy mix of fabrics such as, tribal silk, chiffon, satin or cotton African print (also known as Ankara, wax prints or Dutch wax), which we mix with other embossed and textured materials. We love to work with African prints due to their very form, with their soft, colourful, varied and bold patterns which we use to create a melting pot of Eastern and Western designs with an African twist. As such, no two designs are exactly the same. The patterns of the African prints are bold and colourful and are made mainly from repeated patterns which sometimes tell interesting stories. At FFOLAJI LONDON, we have perfected the art of transforming these prints into current, elegant and contemporary designs with an ethnic feel.

People of excellence deserve clothing of excellence, so a lot of care and effort is put into making each of our piece a unique, ‘must-have’ statement piece. Our designs have been in high demand and we have a number of high profile clients like public speakers, professionals, media as well as film personalities wear or endorse our designs. We also continue to be in collaboration with many of our clients which is a testament to our team’s hard work and the superb craftpersonship. In one of our exclusive creations, be prepared to stand out and discover why at FFOLAJI LONDON, we don’t do ordinary.

OUR INSPIRATION

The inspiration for our collection is not merely about African fashion. It varies from African geography, its flora and fauna through to its people and culture. We are mostly inspired by strong women, women who desire to break through and jack-hammer the glass ceiling, but most of all we are inspired by our own imagination, inner creativity and we invite you to explore with us.
