She is one of the popular Fabric Merchants in Lagos. But, she doesn’t make noise about it. By nature, she is a quiet woman. She prefers doing her things quietly her own way. And she is getting results. She is doing so very well. She understands this business so well that a lot of celebrities (both Male and Female) rush to her for Fabrics. The name of her shop is Secat Textiles on Lagos Island. Why do many celebrities rush to her? We can tell you a lot. She sells exquisite fabrics. She stocks the very best.
It is the home of exotic Swiss fabrics for the women and men of Class. She has supplied fabrics for very many big parties and events. She does big party orders but she does not like talking about it. She does both Men and Women fabrics. She sells high quality Swiss voiles, Atiku and brocades for men too. She makes Aso-Oke too. She made the St Annes School 150 years Anniversary Aso-Oke. That is why I call her Mojisola Alaso-Oke.
That she understands the business, inside out, is because her late mum was also a Fabric Merchant. So, Mrs. Mojisola Temitayo Awotodunbo was born into the business.She has in fact been selling Fabrics since she was in school as a student during her NCE days at Ila Orangun and University days in UNILORIN where she studied Economics/Mathematics. She studied Education Guidance and Counselling and Minor in Economics. She also has a Masters in Business Admin.
She opened her 1st shop on the Island on May 1st, 2001.
In those good old days her mother was a big Textile dealer in Gbagi market in Ibadan. So big was she that she used to supply other traders Fabric. Mojisola grew up to love wearing good lace materials. She was born and bred in the heart of Ibadan at Isale Bode. She attended Polytechnic Staff School and St Annes School, Molete in Ibadan. Before she went fully into selling Fabrics she worked in the bank,from her service year till 2006. She left banking a big woman. She was then the Branch Manager of Oke Arin Branch.
