Designer, musician, and creative Mowalola Ogunlesi graduated from Central Saint Martins before launching her eponymously named label to quick success. Mowalola debuted its first collection, backed by Fashion East, at London Fashion week in 2019 and has become instantly recognizable for the designer's unique perspective and eclectic influences. Ogunlesi was born to two Nigerian fashion designers in Lagos before relocating to London at a young age, and looks to her heritage to inform a playful and multifaceted visual world. Maximalism is filtered through a contemporary and genderless lens seen in psychedelic graphics, colorful body-hugging leather, and tops with revealing cut-outs. The brand continues to show the young designers singular talent in blending varied inspirations into distinct themes and wearable pieces.
