Classic women’s-wear label, Zephans & Co is in the business of fashion to create outfits for strong and sexy women who prefer clothes that complement their style regardless of season.
Creative director of the label, Kiki Achukwu speaks of how it all started with inspiration from her mother who used to be a fashion designer. “First of all, I’ve been passionate about fashion from a young age. My mum was a fashion designer and it was so fascinating watching her piece fabric together to create masterpieces especially because vibrant colours and prints were a huge part 90’s fashion so it was very intriguing and I use to think to myself. “I definitely want to be able to do this one day”. Then as an adult I always found it difficult to get my style of clothing and when I did, the price would usually be outrageous. I knew there were definitely people like me in the same situation and that was just all the push I needed,” she said.
Celebrities like Tiwa Savage, Bisola Aiyeola and Jackie Appiah are among the many women that have dressed in the label’s designs.
A lot of Zephans & Co style inspiration comes from late 80’s to mid 90’s fashion as well as styles displayed in fashion weeks around the world.
Kiki described the label as chic, classy with a splash of vintage and then went on to describe the essentials for every woman’s wardrobe to be a print dress, a crisp white shirt, blue skinny jeans and comfy black heels.
