eKehinde and Taiwo Okunoren have been in the business of designing sophisticated African and European styled suits for over a decade. The duo launched their first line of suits at the very young age of 19 and have continued to rise steadily to prominence ever since. Their most recent accomplishments include the showcasing of their latest designs at the 2012 Arise Fashion Week, an event that was flooded with the who’s who of the African fashion and entertainment industry.

G.O.O.D. Music’s latest addition, D Banj, was also seen sporting a custom made suit by the twins during his sold-out 2013 DKM Concert. Over the years, DJ Caise, Naeto C and Don Jazzy are a few of other celebrity clients the twins have dressed up for red carpet events (and in Naeto C’s case, his very own wedding).
