You probably won't meet a nicer guy than Hakeem Lawal, co-founder of Fari Hara — a Canadian-based menswear brand that specializes in custom-made tailored suits. This spring, Sirocco Fan collaborated with Fari Hara on their first-ever unisex fashion show. Not only did #EMBODIMENT2019 highlight individual expression but the proceeds were donated to Wings of Hope, a registered charitable Breast Cancer Organization that provides financial relief to the Calgary community so breast cancer patients can focus on their recovery! We wanted to catch up with our friend and business partner so we played a round of quick questions.
