Cee Cee’s Closet NYC: A Celebration of West African Beauty

Cee Cee’s Closet NYC is more than just a fashion label. It is a project designed to celebrate and advertise the beauty and culture of West African print. Created by Chioma and Uchenna Ngwudo, these two sisters imagined the possibility of creating designs, accessories, all  handmade by local Nigerian artisans. It worked!

Thanks to their creativity, courage and skill these African designers in the diaspora make the spread and globalization of African fashion a possibility.

The boutique’s strategic location in New York makes it easy to advertise the boldness and richness of African print. It’s impossible to resist the vibes from this boutique as more and more people fall in love with the diverse collections of headwraps, clutches, bags, clothes and handbags skillfully made with African wax prints.

Featured Collections

At Cee Cee’s, diversity is celebrated. There are collections of headwraps, bandanas, shorties, clothes, bags and clutches that come in diverse designs, colours and textures. Thanks to the boldness of West African prints, a little accessory from this boutique may just be all you need for a lively and vibrant look.
