Today’s Woman Editor-in-Chief, Adesuwa Onyenokwe (AO) recently turned 57, and it was a memorable day. Not only did she take the time to herself, reflecting on the last 56 years, but she also discovered something. Now, more than ever, she is more her than she’s ever been.
With this realization, she dedicated herself to express this rediscovered state of self by dressing in pieces from one of her favourite designers, Schon Afrique. The designer, Folake Majin, who she calls friend, provided customized pieces that further made the day of celebration memorable.
