OKUNOREN is a Nigerian Menswear label established in 2002. The brand revolutionized Men’s clothing in Nigeria through its introduction of bespoke tailoring. Taiwo and Kehinde Okunoren, founders of the company, began by selling Men’s shirts imported from the UK and America to their customers and soon after realized they could change the face of the African menswear industry through creating their own brand.
They sought to create a brand that would reflect their core values of minimalism, precision and heritage. An identity that Africans and Non-Africans the world over would come to discover, recognize and appreciate. Drawing inspirations from Savile Row to craft its early collections, the brand has begun to bolster the emergence of a Global African image by reaching deeper into its roots to conceive latter collections. It ventured into luxury retail by opening its Flagship Store in Lagos to wide acclaim in 2013 in a bid to make its Ready to Wear collections more available to its customers.
