Established in Lagos in 2016, The Ladymaker has developed a core aesthetic of understated, strong womanhood. Founder, Ifeyinwa Azubike, trained at Istituto di Moda Burgo (Lagos Campus), having founded The Ladymaker after leaving a decade-long career as a commercial lawyer.
The Ladymaker is known for dedication to fit and a passion for an African interpretation of a well-dressed woman. All of our designs are handmade in the Ladymaker workshop in Lagos Nigeria by a team of pan-african workers led by Azubike.
The label opened its flagship store in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos in 2018.
The company’s founder, Ifeyinwa Azubike, used to be a successful commercial lawyer. Back then, she wasn’t fully convinced that pursuing a career in fashion would be a great idea. So the passion for the industry remained rather a hobby or a fantasy occupation for quite some time until The Ladymaker was established in 2016.
One of the brand’s core ideas is the concept of Ladyhood. A lady, according to the founder, is a woman of stature and accomplishment, living the best life she can and making the things she loves.
