The FAB Shop is one of the best things to hit the African fashion market this year – a store stocked with quality and FAB African brands. Nigerian fashion entrepreneur Familusi Akin Babajide, often called FAB by friends and acquaintances, launched his FAB Shop on Sunday 29th June 2014 in Ikeja, Lagos and it truly was a FAB affair.

The store situated in GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, hosted hundreds of personalities from fashion, music and media. Guests spotted include Sasha P, Falz, Adaure Achumba, Audu Maikori, Ketchup, Lami Phillips, Ejiro Amos-Tafiri, Chris Ubosi, and Olawale of MTN Project Fame West Africa.

Speaking on the launch, Familusi Akin-Babajide stated, “The growth of African fashion lies in the ability to create wealth for the creatives, and at FAB we realize that we may have done well in exposing raw talent from out of Africa to Africans and the rest of the world but now need to actively participate in helping to create a sustainable structure for the industry, an industry I have been in for 13years. Hence, The FAB Shop,”
