MEENA SPRING/SUMMER 2016 UJU OFFIAH | MEENA since 2011 | MEENA is a Lagos based womens-wear brand founded by Uju Offiah in 2011. The name MEENA is an ode to the strength and beauty of the designer's mother who the brand is named after.
The MEENA design philosophy is based on modern femininity, architectonic undertones and confident minimalism.
Since its debut collection titled 'Silver Shadow', MEENA has focused on actualizing and innovating itself while staying true to its DNA of origami inspired detailing, and sophisticated cuts.
With the success of MEENA'S Spring/Summer 2016 Collection titled 'OCHIAGHA' ( an Ibo native word for 'Warrior'), MEENA was tagged the highlight of the Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2016 by Daria Shapovalova in her article for American Vogue listing her top 6 standout Collections. MEENA was also featured in the Africa Rising Story by Modelsdot USA.
In February 2016, Meena was one of the designers chosen to represent Nigeria at the International Fashion Showcase by British Fashion Council. MEENA has also been invited to the year-long 'African Fashion City' Exhibition at the Royal Pavilion and Museums in Brighton England alongside other African Fashion brands.
Uju Offiah is the Founder and Artistic Director of Meena. A graduate of Law from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and a member of the Nigerian Bar Association, Uju went in pursuit of her true passion - creativity and actualizing concepts hence the birth of Meena. Prior to her label launch, she did a brief internship programme with a Nigerian based womens-wear designer, Ituen Basi.
