Tumiila is a fashion label founded in 2012 by UK based young designer Tumisola Ladega. She was 14 years old at the time but decided she didn't want to wait to begin her dream. Prior to this, her individual designs have featured in competitions from the age of 12.
She has since produced a series of collections as well as individual garment projects. Through these years her designs have graced the catwalks of major fashion shows and fashion weeks in places such as Miami, Maryland USA, Lagos Nigeria, Johannesburg South Africa and of course London. As a developing label Tumiila touches all areas from high end couture to urban, and from evening wear to ready to wear. Tumisola is now 16yrs old and her work has also had the privilege of recognitionby the honourable Joan Burstein and Professor Jimmy Choo.
