Since breaking into the spotlight in 2014 as one of the Fashion Focus top 15 Finalists, a platform championed by Lagos Fashion and Design Week, Gozel Green has evolved into a spectacular blend of classic, alternative, and contemporary fashion. Since its inception in 2012 by twin sisters Sylvia Enekwe-Ojei and Olivia Enekwe-Okoji, the passion and drive to design clothing that tells African stories in an unconventional, original, and artistic way has driven every collection, design, and creation. The brand is aimed at women all over the world who are not afraid to be different.
Their artistic parents had a huge influence on the twins. Growing up for them was as natural as it gets. Their immediate surroundings included hills, pleasant weather, diverse and rich south-eastern Nigerian cultures, theatrical performances, storytelling, and a tinge of influence from other cultures in Africa and around the world. It was a diverse academic background that helped them discover their passion for creating art through fashion. Their designs are characterized by artistry, originality, and timelessness. They represent a variety of artistic techniques such as fabric deconstruction, color-blocking, lines, and asymmetry.
They were nominated for the Future Awards Africa Fashion and Design Prize (Nigeria, 2018). The brand was also shortlisted for the International Fashion Showcase (IFS) in London in February 2016 via the StyleHouse Files platform. It was named one of the Jaguar Fashion Awards' emerging designers of the year in 2015. Gozel Green was named one of the top six (6) standout collections at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week in the same year by Vogue.com. They were also named Vogue Italia Talents in 2014 and 2015. They were Regional Judges for Fayrouz L'Originale in Nigeria in 2014.
Accessories give more importance to your personal style, taste and preferences. They also offer unlimited opportunities for clothes, helping you to do the best of each item you have. Clothes take up more space physically in your closet and clothes, but accessories are important details to complete each appearance. By itself, a bag, scarf or jewelry will give much effect.
