Do you love Nigerian designers and are looking to build a timeless wardrobe filled with classics? Then, this is for you. 

There are unique Nigerian-owned or Nigeria-based fashion brands if you take a look around, but there are definitely a few favourites to buy into. While we must warn you that some of the pieces from some of these Nigerian fashion brands don’t come cheap, they are certainly pieces to grace your wardrobe if you want timeless pieces. Or even better? Buying into sustainable fashion?

DEOLA (Sagoe)

Nigerian designer - Deola Sagoe

Deola has perfected working Aso-Oke into mind-blowing designs. She got a lot of attention after creating the ‘Komole Kandids’ collection that blew everyone’s mind away. The collection got a lot of rave reviews, becoming one that other clothing brands started shamelessly copying over and over again.

Her statement pieces that brides are loving are the best ones to get for keeps.


Right off Deola is CLAN. Oh, do we love some classic CLAN pieces? Deola Sagoe’s daughters own CLAN so the creativity lifts right off. Their pieces are simple yet timeless. There’s always something well put together about CLAN pieces. A style or two from the brand will definitely give your wardrobe a classic lift.

Lisa Folawiyo

Lisa Folawiyo - Nigerian designers

We’re sure you can tell we are huge Lisa Folawiyo fans over here! This fashionable designer turned Ankara prints into chic must-haves that we’ve come to love. With LF, style is effortless and it’s evident in her designs, the embellishment, and the sass of her prints. A LF piece will stand you out anywhere, anytime!

The Ladymaker

This brand is fast becoming a favourite of ours, why? The designs are soo ladylike. With The Ladymaker piece, you’re definitely going to be prim and stylish all at the same time. Our favourite piece from the brand remains the cocoon coat. It’s one to invest in.

Lady Biba

Lady Biba crafts structured pieces for lady bosses with this Nigerian brand, workwear, is classy and stylish, plus the fit is always one to turn heads your way. We bet The Charmaine Wrap, one of LB’s foremost designs, would still be a head-turner in the present day.

Tiffany Amber

TA is yet another favourite here at Fashionandco. Tiffany Amber designs classic, feminine floaty pieces to compliment any wardrobe. The absolute reason we would invest in a TA piece is that it can easily be handed down. They are worthy fashion investments.

Ejiro Amos Tafiri

Nigerian designer - Ejiro amos tafiri

This is another favourite brand of ours! EAT pieces are must-haves for the classy woman. Her wrap sets are always in and look great in any wardrobe, no matter the occasion.
