Hurray! It’s the big 30 for the Gozel Green sisters

Happy birthday to Sylvia and Olivia Enekwe, brains behind Nigeria’s premium alt-womenswear label Gozel Green.

Coming to the limelight after being chosen for the 2014 Lagos Fashion and Design Week’s Fashion Focus programme, the sisters have quickly transformed their label from fledgling to a fully established label nominated for awards in and out of the country. Gozel Green has been chosen to represent Nigeria in international showcases like the International Fashion Showcase in London and the recently opened Fashion Cities Africa showcase.

For those not in the know, Gozel Green recently released a very first looks at their Fall 2016 collection, just a day before they turn 30, joining the ranks of fabulous designers like the Olsen Twins who have distinguished with their brand, The Row. What could be a better birthday present than that?

The new collection builds on the aesthetic that Sylvia and Olivia have carefully crafted, a sensual woman who takes elements of menswear and androgyny and wears them with a decidedly feminine twist. The label’s distinctive applique designs and unconventional hems are replicated here too. The aesthetic however moves sharply away from the far more feminine themes of their first two collections and builds on the more utilitarian aesthetic of Marching To Kilimanjaro, their Spring 16 collection. We can’t wait to see the full thing.

 

We are super excited about our AW16 Collection titled: A BAND OF GUERILLAS. We are thankful to our team of talented creatives for making this a seamless journey❤️😘👍✔️. “A BAND OF GUERILLAS assumes a cause for gender action! An action that only transcends into a reality that speaks nothing but freedom. The freedom to choose and not to choose! With her small fist, her tender smiles and provocative gesture…the woman fights hard for that freedom and individuality! This collection presents silhouettes that are masculine yet feminine. From the detailed pocket squares to the boxing pockets…it encourages women to embrace their feminity” ~ #GOZELGREEN.
