ONI by NGOZI    

2019 Design Gallery

For some, fashion is art; for others, it is a way to imagine a new world. Our first ONI collection, retraces history and explores possibility by honoring a long tradition of unique fashion crafted by Black women from West Africa to America. Take a look at some of my garments and other items  below that use piecing, quilting techniques, beading and appliqué.

ONI is translated as “sacred ground” in Yoruba.
