Ozora and BebeGrafiti, two of Nigeria’s finest fashion designers will showcase their latest collections on 4th August 2012 at the Africa Fashion Week (AFWL) in London.
The biggest African fashion event in the UK is taking place at the London Spitalfields Market, today and tomorrow.
Both designers return for their second season at AFWL after making their debut last year to critical acclaim.
Ozora was founded in 2008 by the Nigerian born Josephine Sey. Ozora has outlets in Lagos, Nigeria and the UK and is sold on various top branded shopping sites across Europe and America.
It is a luxury label that is all about elegance, class and sophistication, designing clothes that are great for that stand out red carpet event.
Being a luxury brand for the discerning modern woman, Ozora uses fabrics and designs to make the modern woman feel great and stand out wherever she is.
Ozora’s garments celebrate the arts and crafts from African culture, while maintaining modern styles and silhouettes. The label’s immaculate craftsmanship caters to needs of the quintessential fashion follower.
Ozora's range includes Kaftans, Kaftan dresses, Tunic, Tops, Day Dresses and Evening wear. The collections are crystallised and hand embroidered complementing the finest fabrics.
The creative director of BebeGrafiti is Es Anozia from the Niger-Delta, Nigeria. Es Anozia started as the Head Designer at the BebeGrafiti label many years after her degree in Mathematics and Computing and post graduate studies in Education in the UK.
Upon returning to Nigeria, her creative side was unleashed and she started experimenting and combining the variety of materials and textures evident in the rich Niger-Delta fabrics.
BebeGrafiti’s designs focus on encouraging people to embrace African culture through fashion and view it as hip, trendy and fashionable for the 21st century.
Es Anozia is a very proud Nigerian that believes that BebeGrafiti’s pieces can be worn by any discerning woman to any event and at any time, from day to evening, casual to professional. The garments are rich in pattern and versatility.
BebeGrafiti was conceived by a determined desire to put the Niger-Delta on the map through fashion.
In less than three years it has become a recognised international brand with stars and celebrities regularly wearing BebeGrafiti designs to top events.
BebeGrafiti designs clothing with an African and modern flair. Inspired by rhythm, colour, geometry, people, patterns, layers, volume, crafts and eras, clothes made for both children and women can be worn to daytime events, cocktails, parties, and ballroom events.
BebeGrafiti designs for the fearless woman who wants to standout in the crowd and does not want to merely conform to standard African attires.
BebeGrafiti believes today's youth is looking for something more dynamic yet retro.
BebeGrafiti’s mantra is: Fashion is the safest form of rebellion.
