As the saying goes, Nigerian born Canadian transplant Esé Azénabor got to Texas as fast as she could. Her arrival on the fashion scene, however, required a few additional detours. But we think you’ll agree her creations were well worth the wait.
Hailing from a family who considered fashion design more of a hobby than a career, young Esé had to sweep her creative urges under the rug. The Azénabor name was grounded in the fields of medicine, law, and engineering, and she, in turn, attended the University of Windsor in Windsor in Ontario, Canada, and majored in accounting. A move to Dallas followed, to pursue a Masters Degree at Southern Methodist University, detoured to following her dreams and started designed handmade dresses for her self, friends and family. Since she was a little girl, Esé held to her mother’s belief in her talent for creating wearable art.
In 2012, without any financial assistance, this self-taught designer traded predictable college life for the wild world of fashion with the launch of her Self Titled ready-to-wear line. At her sewing machine, she conceptualized her fascination for heavy hand beading, crocheted lace, exquisite fabrics and embroidery. Inspired by a combination of vintage, African, Egyptian, and contemporary European influences, she merged cultures to create her debut of her Haute-Couture and Ready-to-wear luxurious collection. Esé has now debuted three collections and teame
up with her sister Dosé Azénabor to create her most recent SS15 Collection and today they are now partners for the fashion Label.
Esé Azénabor’s goal is to empower women through the art of fashion.
