Alima Oyofo: Sexy Piping hot!
For Alima, what started as an experiment at her sister’s factory – Odio Mimonet just about four years ago has morphed into the Brand ‘LilPepperfriend’. The phrase which is derived from her nickname ‘atawewe’ or ‘small pepper’ reflects the vibrancy of the Brand. Lilpepperfriend was established in the summer of 2008 and is synonymous with eclectic one-of- a-kind accessories[bags and Ankara/aso-oke slippers], edgy colours that pop and indeed has been described as art by all lovers of all things cultural and current. At the Vlisco show in Feb. 2009, ‘Lilpepperfriend bags where showcased alongside Odio Mimonet and they served as the perfect complement to the fantastic outfits thus eliciting a standing ovation from the enthralled audience. Alima is a unique artist undefinable by boundaries. Her beauty is matched with her brilliance, her unpredictability matched with a consistency in delivery, all in a small frame bursting forth with life and vivacity.

LUCY ODIM – Independent Style
An Independent woman by all standards, Lucy’s courtship with fashion began after she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in French. Lucy’s crave to be independent propelled her to create traditional outfits popularly known as Senegalese which was greeted with rapt attention. With time her growing clientele demanded more and Lucy was thus pressed with creating a suitable accessory to complement her unique designs. Her crave saw her reject the trend of Bag merchants, and she began to churn out her own personal designs. Today D LUNE [Her Brand], showcases versatile works running from leather to the damask, aso-oke and a diverse range of eye catching works of art.
