5 more days to the official store launch of The FAB Shop, a store focused on showcasing quality fashion pieces from African designers. You can read up on details for the launch happening on Sunday, 29th of June, 2014 Here – while we continue to get to know some of the African brands that will be stocked in The FAB Shop.
PEARL 1130 was born in the heart of Lagos in 2010, with a mantra of making functional and modern chic clothing and accessories with a vintage vibe. Their designs have an aspirational mix of style, attention to detail and desirability that makes fashion conscious people want to wear them every time. They look to African heritage and global fashion at large for inspiration when designing collections, they tend to stay away from trends but make their designs very chic and modern.
The brand takes pride in making life easy by designing pieces for every occasion according to budget while still making our customers look and feel sexy, chic and fabulous.
