Nigeria

Designer Cynthia Otiyo-Abila’s clothing is created, from concept to construction, in Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja. She channels her passion for storytelling into the Cynthia Abila label, interpreting traditional subject matter for a modern audience. Collection narratives are rendered as standout takes on wardrobe classics like suiting and shirt dresses for the contemporary woman, produced by a predominately female team of artisans in handwoven silks and cottons.
