Why Wonuola Odunsi-Okoye Dumped L’Espace
Though there is no clear reason why she decided to move on from the company she co-founded some years ago, a dependable source confirmed that Wonu may have disengaged from the company following incessant disagreements with her business partner, Isoken Ogiemwonyi.
Married in 2012 to Felix Okoye, a businessman, Wonu studied chemical engineering. Her work experience includes investment banking. Well, the first multi-brand concept store which launched in 2011, was co-founded by both Wonuola and Isoken and it was purely dedicated to Nigerian fashion design, beauty and lifestyle, creating a solid platform for both emerging and established brands.
It was created after successful three years of Le Petit Marche, the foremost Nigerian designers market in 2009 driving discovery and bridging the fashion retail distribution gap in Nigeria.
The current flagship store, L’Espace will be closed for business in preparation for the new chapter which kicks off in July.
