Cee Cee’s Closet NYC was created by Chioma and Uchenna Ngwudo in New York City. This sister duo created an adage to their West African roots by crafting unique accessories with prints relevant to their cultural background. Each product is designed by the Ngwudo sisters and then handmade in Nigeria by female tailors and artisans. Their fair trade goods include headwraps, handbags, jewelry, and clothing pieces.

“Having our accessories made in Nigeria allows Cee Cee’s Closet NYC to have a transformative impact on the lives of our artisan partners,” states the Ngwudo sisters. “ This project is dedicated to our amazing parents, aunts, friends, and all women who boldly decide to pursue their passions.”

The vision of Cee Cee’s Closet NYC  was manifested during a trip to Nigeria. They were inspired by the expertly crafted garments and accessories they saw in the marketplace and decided to bring a piece of Africa back to Brooklyn. Seeing the demand for the authentic pieces, the sisters launched Cee Cee’s Closet NYC in 2015, and it has quickly morphed into the go to destination for fashionable women who love to add meaningful color to their looks with a pop of West African prints. Their brand has grown in popularity in the states, all while having a positive economic impact on Nigeria.

The Ngwudo sisters’ approach to African prints is creating attention-grabbing pieces that fit seamlessly into your closet. They give the fashionable woman an assortment of products that are well priced and perfect for both everyday wear and special occasions.
