biography

Bridget Awosika is a Parsons School of Design alumni and designer/creative director of the eponymous label Bridget Awosika. Launched in 2010, Bridget Awosika aims to bring African designs to an international audience. The brand celebrates the continent, maintaining a strong African identity with the simple, stark fabrics and fluid asymmetrical lines that define Bridget Awosika’s signature aesthetic. With a modern and refined sensibility, the label draws inspiration from architecture, modern and surreal art, culture and a stronger sense of femininity. Born in Lagos, Awosika moved to Washington, DC when she was a teenager, and was educated in New York, but she believes that her experience as an African is what guides her work most. “In the end, I believe it’s my work that’s most important – not so much where I’m from,” she said, speaking to Vogue Italia. “I love being African and I wouldn’t trade the African experience for anything. It’s definitely part of what has moulded me to become the woman and the designer who I am today.”
