About the Company :
Nyorh Agwe is a unique ethical luxury lifestyle brand that breeds bold individuality. Throughout the brand visuals unfold telling the continuous story of an African girl growing up everywhere except Africa. The journey brings about moments, memories, and experiences blurred between multi cultural and social barriers to challenge and to share throughout the collection.
Stepping back into its roots, Nyorh Agwe strives to be a Made in Cameroon label. By supporting local Cameroonian artisans from all over the region, we fight to re-establish and re-invent the art culture that so eloquently reflected the history of its people. In collaboration with Cameroonian artisans we celebrate their craft by incorporating their unique techniques to create unexpected fabrications.
The Nyorh Agwe brand pushes to sustain the hand craft of Cameroon artisans by providing jobs and development programs to expand their skills as well as an outlet to continue their stories. Nyorh Agwe is a brand that challenges the idea of how culture can move forward into modernity without forgetting itself completely.
About the creator of the brand :
Nyorh Agwe was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon in 1993. However, she did not stay there for long. In fact, shortly after her birth she moved back to Italy with her mother and grew up there until she was 4 years old. From there she moved back to Cameroon and lived there until she was 6 before finally moving to the United States.
In 2011, Nyorh attended Parsons School of Design to pursue a fashion design career and graduated in 2015. In 2016 she founded Nyorh Agwe the clothing brand to share her experiences as to how she was able to rewrite her story through fashion.
