Imadeface (formerly known as Imade Gems and Accessories) was founded in September 2002, the brain child of Ronke Idowu, a fashionista well acclaimed in social circles for her innate sense of style. The name ‘Imade’ (Benin language for “I have a purpose in Life”) was chosen in honor of her late mom who influenced her love of beauty and fashion.
Ronke further nurtured her natural flair and transformed a hobby into a profession by qualifying as a Jewelry designer, Certified make-up Artist, and Professional Personal Stylist. It is against this backdrop that Ronke made the decision to expand Imadeface to a full service personal styling and fashion consultancy.
The mission of Imadeface is to make all clients impeccably attired and accessorized and a stand-out that would be on best dressed list at any event. Imadeface offers clients personalized Jewelry design, elegant head-to-toe wardrobe co-ordination and exquisite make-overs by Ronke. Ronke is well-travelled and a product of multiple cultures and these influences can often be seen in her bold, colorful and creative designs.
In addition to her fashion credentials, Ronke holds a Master’s degree in International Relations from the University of Leeds in England.
