Paramole Omotayo opens new studio in Lagos, Nigeria


The summer of 2019 marked an exciting new beginning for the Nigerian winner of the Vlisco Fashion Fund 2018, Paramole Omotayo. The owner and lead creative designer at TESMI opened a new fashion studio in Lagos, Nigeria on August 24th, 2019.

The TESMI studio

The TESMI studio has everything it needs to function at a skilled level. It has a comfortable area for receiving guests, where clients may be fitted for personalised garments, for example. The on-location production area is where garments are assembled and fabrics are stored, and is only open to workers. Omotayo explains: “The studio itself is set up so that the workers and clients have separate entrances and exits, this way the focus on work can be maintained.” Hard work and maintaining focus have great pay-offs.


Opening a studio environment like this is a fundamental step for Paramole Omotayo towards professionally positioning his brand effectively in the local, and global market. At Vlisco we look forward to seeing this creative talent grow.


The TESMI studio is located in Lagos Nigeria, 2, Nkanna street, Shyllon Palmgrove in Lagos, Nigeria
