It was the annual 2015 graduation ceremony for the students of the International School for Creative Arts. Honorary President of the school Professor Jimmy Choo was guest of honour. Certificates were presented to graduating students and awards given to outstanding students one of whom was our very own Tumisola Ladega .

Even though 16 years old Tumisola was not in the graduating year, she was one of the two students honoured by Professor Jimmy Choo with a certificate and a Bursary Prize for outstanding work in Fashion and Design and for making such remarkable progress in the short time she joined the school for A levels.

Tumiila is a fashion label founded in 2012 by UK based young designer Tumisola Ladega. She was 14 years old at the time but decided she didn’t want to wait to begin her dream. Prior to this, her individual designs have featured in competitions from the age of 12. She has since produced a series of collections as well as individual garment projects.

Through these years her designs have graced the catwalks of major fashion shows and fashion weeks in Miami, Maryland USA, Lagos Nigeria, South Africa and of course London. As a developing label, Tumiila touches all areas, from high end couture to urban, and from evening to ready to wear. Tumisola is now 16 years old and her work has also had the privilege of recognition   by the honourable Joan Burstein and Professor Jimmy Choo.
