For those who do not know, Leila Fowler is a boutique in Nigeria owned by Funke Fowler.Funke Fowler is the  Grand daughter of Chief Mrs Leila Fowler who is the Owner of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls. The boutique is named after Chief Mrs Leila Fowler.

Funke Fowler once said that her dream for ‘Leila Fowler’  was for it to be synonymous with Lagos as Saks Fifth Avenue is to New York and Neiman Marcus is to Texas.

Today ‘Leila Fowler’ can proudly boast of this dream coming true as Leila Fowler was  recognised in the October 1st edition of New York Times.

This is an extract from the original article:-

‘The continent’s wealth, though disproportionately concentrated, already is being spent on luxury goods by affluent Africans who shop in cities like London, Paris, Johannesburg and Dubai. Several luxury retailers and stores in London, for example, already count Nigerians among their top five spenders, trailing only Chinese, Russians, Americans and Arab tourists from the Gulf. And in Lagos, new boutiques like Temple Muse and Leila Fowler are catering to the elite locally by stocking both international and African designer labels.’
