FOUNDER & CEO
Fashion, Art and Music have always been her long life friends, thanks to the fulfilment she has achieved and every beat of happiness that they gave her. Today Bali Lawal lives with awareness and serenity in a small world that offers value, diversity and inclusion.
When she first arrived in Milan, the world capital of Fashion, times were different as she happened to be the only black young girl among the models. She was never overwhelmed by it, but, rather embraced the diversity. Courage has always been her best companion and friend along the long journey that she faced on the catwalks of Europe, the USA and Africa too.
Bali has always believed in the principles of individuality, shared goal and sacrifice, which she had the privilege to live special moments and experiences with. After 15 years of modelling, Bali decided to attend a general management course at SDA Bocconi to increase and develop her skills, in order to better contribute to this ever-growing diverse world - which is her ultimate calling.
Courage, positivity and joy are the virtues that animate her spirit and mission A Coded World, in which "our flag proudly waves high above the sky“ doing ”what we do best to distinguish our dreams from the reality and to link them with a pinch of magic”.

Born in Treviso but based everywhere, because the joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences.
After working as a member of the Organising Committee for the 2016 WUC Speed Skating, as a waitress, as a children’s entertainer in Spain and, now as a member of A Coded World I consider myself quite flexible and eclectic.
I have always been in love with languages that have been the core of my studies during my academic path; first with a degree in Interpretation and Translation, later with a master in International relations and, now with a double degree program (Milan-Strasbourg) in communication.
I am strongly convinced that we are so ever-changing that we are not able to know what the future holds for us nor to imagine what we will be like but, for now I can assure that I love the place and the team I am in.
Born and raised in Milan, I’m an Economics student at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. Despite my young age, I have always had a great passion for the luxury and fashion business, so in the future I’d like to work in this field maybe after a master.
I’m an extremely curious and extrovert girl, who loves to take on new challenges. I always try to surround myself with people that can contribute to my personal growth, that’s why I really enjoy team working. I also love to travel and discover new cultures; I think that exploring is the best way to know more yourself and the world that we live in.
Miuccia Prada once said "What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today, when human contacts are so quick. Fashion is instant language." and I strongly believe that. I think that fashion is the quickest perception of art and beauty, a tool that everyone has at their disposal to express themselves and their vision of the world.
