Today, Funmi Ajila-Ladipo stands tall among fashion designers in Nigeria. By all standards, she is a designer par excellence.
The fair-complexioned woman, who hails from Ekiti State, is one of the few who have done the nationâ€™s fashion industry proud.
Since she launched her outfit, Regalia Couture, some decades ago, she has trained and continued to inspire younger ones who love fashion designing.
At 30, she won the Fashion Designer of the Year diadem, amidst a blaze of glory. By that feat, her clientele grew astronomically because it further exposes her inventiveness and ingenuity. At different times, she had represented Nigeria in a couple of fashion shows abroad.
Well, this may not be news any longer. But what may interest anyone is the fact she and her husband, Rufai Ladipo, an advertising guru, have remained an item of sorts. They have never tired ofÂ showing the world how much they love each, their 14 years of marriage is waxing stronger and it is becoming a good example of a good marriage.
At a recent event in Lagos, they were said to be over each other, cuddling, laughing like first-time lovers. The source even confirmed that they left the party holding each other.
