NGOZI Design Sewing Circle will participate in this event!
Come celebrate with us and see our new collection!
Pictured here is one of the oldest sewing machines owned by Grace Beatrice Walker (my mom). She had many machines over many years but this one is one of my favorites!
NGOZI Design presents ONI
For some, fashion is art; for others, it is a way to imagine a new world. Our collection, Oni - translated as “sacred ground” in Yoruba, retraces history and explores possibility by honoring a long tradition of block printing, quilting and unique fashion crafted by Black women from West Africa to America.
This collection showcases creativity and spirituality through colors, textiles, and designs unique to the collective sartorial genius of Black women on the continent and here in the Diaspora.
