Gbemi Okunola, CEO, Alo’Nuko said: “Working in fashion and starting my own business whilst growing up in Peckham saved me from a lot of things that I could have been involved with. I feel like a lot of the violence and youth crime in South London is because people are idle and are afraid to follow their dreams.

Being a young fashion designer was very time-consuming and demanding which meant that on a daily basis after school or college I was working in my studio instead of getting involved with the wrong crowd, and now my dream is becoming a reality. I am excited to share the Alo’Nuko bridal launch with everyone.
