SS14 William Okpo

William Okpo is a women’s wear collection designed by sisters Darlene and Lizzy Okpo. A nurtured love for fashion and creativity brought about the birth of their collection, which is named after their father. The Okpo sisters wish to illustrate the unique aesthetic that results from the juxtaposition of the immigrant’s sense of style against American cultural sensibilities, offering the modern feminine designs with touches of masculine elements. William Okpo is for women who celebrate their cultivated sense of style.

Inside EXODUS GOODS.

There are some places you don’t have to set foot in to know are beautiful.

Nestled in New Orleans’ French Quarter, this concept boutique stocked with unique and colourful goods, and a charming interior that looks tactfully unfinished, is the brain child of designer sisters Lizzy and Darlene Okpo and fellow creative Armina Mussa.

STREETCHIEF Lookbook Pre-Fall 2014: “Area Boys Collection”.

Whilst many of us are familiar with Kente fabric being used in contemporary fashion, no one does it quite like STREETCHIEF. For their latest collection, the menswear fashion brand have once again found ways to incorporate Kente-inspired prints into street wear garments - from button-up shirts to white-rimmed vests.
