M.O.T is a Lagos-based ready-to-wear fashion brand that creates affordable, functional and fashionable statement pieces for women around the world.
Our Brand Story
M.O.T was launched in 2019 with a mission to provide fashionable, functional and affordable for the contemporary woman. The brand uses colours and vibrancy to create versatile but timeless products that infuse style, comfort and functionality in creating what M.O.T describes as ‘African Minimalist Fashion’. M.O.T aspires to satisfy the disposition of women who have the desire to look stylish, practical and still feel comfortable in their bodies. It is for women who want to walk into a room and own it, who want to look and feel sophisticated, and express themselves through their personal style.
Mo started her journey in the fashion industry as an Image Consultant but shortly after, transitioned to fashion design. She showed her first high fashion collection at Lagos Fashion Week (LFW), earning online coverage from renowned brands like Vogue and Women’s Wear Daily (WWD).
While maintaining a love and respect for luxury fashion, she noticed a gap in the market for brands that cater specifically to black and brown women, especially ones like herself who have unconventional body proportions, and she launched M.O.T to fill that gap. The brand now serves customers in over 20 countries.
Her passion for human capital development has played a role in determining her approach to building M.O.T; keeping all functions of the business in-house- across design, marketing, manufacturing and retail.
Mo has a deep love and appreciation for art, food, architecture, decor and music. She is passionate about elevating the work of African creatives and creators; and developing the Nigerian fashion industry.
She holds a degree in Economics from the University of Nottingham, and has honed her technical fashion skills through self teaching and enrolling in fashion courses at the University of Arts’ London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins.
Mo is currently the CEO and Artistic Director at M.O.T.
