Some years ago when there was no social media, the challenge of discovering Nigerian fashion brands was never an easy feat. In fact, for anyone across the pond, you have to tell a friend to tell a friend to help get you a piece of garment from Nigeria. It was daunting and infuriating, to say the least. But as the era of digitalization offers more and new opportunities, it’s now time to focus on the future and get acquainted with all the fashion brands (whether old or emerging) that need to be known.
People around the world are always, relentlessly searching for what to wear or which brand to support, whether it’s a brand that offers chic off-duty and workwear staples, cult-accessories, bridal pieces, or labels that are just challenging the way we see African designers. It’s not that some of these names are not globally recognized but consider this list your ultimate guide to discovering Nigerian fashion brands that are shaping the industry. Get to know and follow them and remember where you read it first because there has never been such a compilation.
PS: If your brand is not here and you feel it’s worthy to be on the list, kindly reach out to us as we’ll continue to update the list.
