Sisters in Style

Lizzy & Darlene Okpo for from StyleLikeU on Vimeo.

The Okpo sisters, Lizzie and Darlene of NYC have been featured on Opening Ceremony, Refinery29, Stylelikeu, and lately. The ladies forwent the common "Lawyer, Doctor, or Engineer" career path sternly by most Naija parents to create fashion line William Okpo, ironically named after their father. What sets them apart from most designers is the recognition for their own unique personal style first and foremost. Inspired by their dads sense of style and love of fashion, they create out of desire and the necessity to fulfill them.
