William Okpo is a women's wear collection designed by
sisters Darlene and Lizzy Okpo. A nurtured love for fashion and creativity
brought about the birth of their collection, which is named after their father.
The William Okpo line is inspired by the parents of the Okpo
sisters. Daughters of Nigerian immigrants, Darlene and Lizzy were motivated by
the interplay of their parents’ personal style with American culture.
With William Okpo, the Okpo sisters wish to illustrate the
unique aesthetic that results from the juxtaposition of the immigrant's sense
of style against American cultural sensibilities, offering the modern feminine
designs with touches of masculine elements. William Okpo is for women who
celebrate their cultivated sense of style.
