About Gozel Green
Designers: Olivia Enekwe-Okoji, Sylvia Enekwe-Ojei
Categories: Women's apparel
Twins Sylvia Enekwe-Ojei and Olivia Enekwe-Okoji founded Gozel Green in 2012. Using bold pops of color and unconventional silhouettes, the sisters have created a look that embodies contemporary design, with the desire to tell African narratives in an original, artistic way driving every collection. Part of the storytelling incorporates the twins’ Igbo heritage into their designs, for example, by adding words from the language on T-shirts. The designers are also inspired by art and nature, which shows in the use of color-blocking, geometric lines and asymmetry. Gozel Green also takes sustainability very seriously and great care is taken to source materials that are local to Nigeria.
