How London Fashion Designer, Fola Adeboye Built Her Sweetfola Couture Brand

She runs a big fashion brand in London. She is a British-trained fashion designer, who is doing so well with her Sweetfola Couture, London brand.

Let's tell you about Fola Adeboye, a very talented lady who makes other ladies look good.

Recently, CityPeople Magazine Publisher, Seye Kehinde got her to reveal her success story. Below are excerpts of the interview.


Tell me about your SWEETFOLA Couture brand. What makes it unique.


My brand is unique from others because we specialise in womenswear, luxurious-made couture clothes and online boutique clothing.


Sweetfola Couture represents the entire strong woman. Women who never give up on their dreams, confident and achievers, the one that stood in the storm and the wind did not blow her away, and also the one who walks on purpose that doesn’t have to chase people or opportunities. Here is to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, and may we raise them. 


What made you set up your fashion business in 2016?


It has been a long-time ambition to be a successful fashion designer. That’s why I established my brand in 2016 immediately after my Graduation.


Secondly, my highly commended debut collection, called STRONG WOMEN, made up of bright red and fuchsia floor-sweeping gowns that quickly attracted the attention of the fashion industry after my collection was showcased on the Runway at London Graduation Fashion Week 2016. Also, my Ready-to-wear Spring Summer 2017 collection that was showcased in British Vogue Magazinewas rated The most elegant and well-tailored collection of the week


What has kept you going since 2016?


First of all, is the Grace of God. It has been my Strength, Focus and looking at the bigger pictures. Keeping a small business afloat in challenging times can be difficult, but extra attention to detail can help ensure that a business survives.


 Because every small business is different, and each carries its own risks and rewards. There is no set playbook to follow for survival. 


How did you coin the name Sweetfola Couture for your brand?


Sweetfola is about myself. Sweet is the flavor that speaks about my character. That is what formed my brand name.
