Bridget Awosika discovered her love for fashion and design early in life and chased her dreams all the way to Parsons School of Design, before working as an intern at Donna Karen and then Giorgio Armani. After a year at Armani, Bridget decided to start her own line and the mastery of fabrics and design exhibited at these two fashion power houses is evident in her impeccable work. Awosika’s brand was one of the first truly international brands we saw emerge from the new crop of young Nigerian designers in Africa.
