My Name is Afolasade Ogunkoya and i am the creative director for Casadelamouk which was borne out of my passion for making beautifully crafted and well tailored outfits using fabrics sourced from Africa. As a child growing up in Lagos, Nigeria i had a deep rooted passion for fashion and was always known to stand out from the crowd. This flair prompted me to want to further my studies in the fashion industry however this was opposed by my parent who wanted me to have a career in the financial industry or what they termed a stable source of income. VOILA!!!!! I went sent to the University of Exeter, United Kingdom to bag a masters degree in Financial Analysis and Fund Management. I returned to Nigeria and started working in various investment banks in different roles until i became a manager. However, something was missing as i still felt incomplete and unaccomplished. I realized i was sent to fulfil my life long dream of being a designer. I immediately enrolled at a fashion school for a year program and learnt all the intricacies about tailoring using both the french and english techniques for my finishing. I continued to develop myself in every aspect of the fashion business and have been consistent in my learning ability to reach the peak. All our products are made in Africa with distribution in UK, USA and Lagos.
