The Ngozi Design Group, is the parent company of Ngozi Design Collective, Ngozi Custom Studio and Talking Drum Marketing. Andrea and Leon Carter are owners/partners creating jewelry and clothing and selling online and in small markets and boutiques. The company was launched in Alpharetta, Georgia in 2009 and moved to Durham, North Carolina shortly thereafter. We continued selling in small markets while learning how to run a small boutique. In 2015 we had the opportunity to open our own boutique and we were able to grow a robust custom clothing business, create an in-store consignment shop and collaborate with over 100 artists and designers consigning their hand made products. We were also able to rent space, host receptions and trunk shows, readings and other community events. The Ngozi Design Collective closed its doors in 2019 and continued doing business online with a variety of artists, designers and sewists. Later that same year Ngozi joined the Artists of Golden Belt and created and showcased their first novelty collection named ONI.
