Though we didn’t quite agree in totality with some of their choices, made up of some or better still many usual suspects, we were in total, in fact absolute agreement with the choice of ‘Abisola Kolapo Daisi nee Ajimobi’.
Her style can be defined as quite quirky, very classic, a mixture of the timeless and the avant garde.

Her bags, shoes and jewelry collection are to die for! Especially the latter, that is, the jewelry collection. It’s only when you are close to her though, that you would notice some of the awesome diamonds and rare stones that she adorns elegantly and effortlessly, like they are nothing.
