When it comes to describing Toyin lawani, one word comes to mind: VIGOR. She is every glorious shade of strength, determination and style. A serial entrepreneur, Toyin is a great example of diversity, focus and success – qualities that the modern boss lady strives to achieve. She is the Founder and CEO of Tiannah’s Place Empire, a top fashion and lifestyle company that operates in a wide range of business activities such as fashion designing, unisex salon and Spa, Travels, Makeup and Television production, amongst others.
When it comes to the art of fashion designing, this mogul is on top of her game as she is a favourite on the list of A-list celebrities in Africa. Toyin’s amazing dedication and careful attention to work ethics and details remains a major reason she has become a force to be reckoned with in Africa’s beauty and Fashion Industry.
Toyin’s journey to entrepreneurship, which was primarily inspired by her mother’s entrepreneurial life, started in secondary school. As a food and nutrition student, she made some money for herself making snacks for sale. Thereafter she proceeded to the sale of fashion items.
With time, she built herself a huge business brand which she named after her daughter, Tiannah.
She recently started her reality TV show – Tiannah’s Empire – which airs on Ebonylife TV and trails her typical day as a business mogul.
