"Working together has been a huge blessing so far. We always love working together as a team in achieving any set goal. Having a partner is one thing, but having a sister as a partner is another thing. It can never be the same. That’s why we feel blessed for the fact we have one goal and we work together in achieving the set goal. We have been used to doing things together, loving the same sports, food and interestingly same friends too. So now, it’s easier being co-owners of Gozel Green. Even if one of us is away, we always keep ourselves updated on the day to day occurrences. We are twins, YES! But as humans, we come up with different ideas and strategies. Bearing these in mind, we weigh our ideas and methods of approach by putting them on the table, analyzing, and constructively criticizing what we feel doesn’t work best in the set project. This has always been our method throughout our years of designing together and so far, it has been working out great." — Olivia Okoji and Sylvia Anekwe, designers behind Gozel Green, speaking with @accelerate_tv@gozelgreen#gozelgreen#contemporarydesign#africandesign#fashiondesigner#lagosfashionweek#igbomask#aw17#nigeria
"Our parents are a great source of inspiration. Our mother, Mrs. Chioma Josephine Enekwe, studied fashion at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York in the 70’s while our late Dad, Prof. Onuora Osmond Enekwe was a Theatre Art giant, a lover of arts and a Poet. All our collections have been inspired by his poems.
