Layo G. is a luxury brand that provides edgy, tailored clothing for modern day women. They design pieces that take women from the office to a lounge, from day to night, from professional to chic and beyond.
Nigerian born designer, Layo Gbadamosi established Layo G. in the heart of the Garment District in New York City. Layo studied Fashion Design at Parsons, The New School for Design, while simultaneously attending law school at Fordham University School of Law. She spent years learning about the business of fashion while interning and working in the legal departments of Burberry, Coach, Saks Fifth Avenue and Stuart Weitzman. Upon obtaining her law license, she served as Counsel and Legal Director for Jovani Fashions before establishing Layo G.
Layo G have recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for their patent-pending “Timeless Jacket”. It features jackets with pocket slits that can be worn together with other pieces in current and future collections. Wearers simply insert the pocket flaps of the inner piece through the pocket slit of the outer Timeless Jacket. Proceeds from their Kickstarter campaign will go towards developing their next upcoming collection, titled “She Is King,” in collaboration with artist, Ndidi Emefiele. The collection will debut in August 2014. The company also plans to gear up their PR efforts in order to enhance their brand visibility and increase their production capabilities.
