About The Brand
Ezie is designed for the contemporary woman. Our exclusive collections strike a delicate balance between bold and experimental, and classic and timeless. Designed for women by a woman, our pieces are elegant, yet edgy and of exemplary quality.
In 2017, our founder established Ezie to help women elevate their everyday wardrobes. Her philosophy—that core wardrobe pieces need not be basic—led her to design provocative garments that would transcend cultures and lifestyles. Each garment is intentionally designed to complement the Ezie woman’s confidence and curated style.
Our brand’s mission is to celebrate the power our women walk in. Our luxury garments are versatile and are designed for effortless integration into your working wardrobe. Marked by sophisticated fabrics and patterns, they are equally as fashionable as they are functional.
About the Founder
Like the Ezie woman, founder and designer Esther Ihezie is multidimensional. Growing up, fashion was a creative outlet for the young Esther. As a preteen, she began designing her own clothing, and with the help of a local seamstress in Nigeria, she produced one-of-a-kind outfits she would often wear to church and events. She was led to study medicine by a desire to help care for sick family members, yet the creativity fashion afforded her had sparked a flame.
Years later during her medical residency program, Esther styled working men and women by referral only. Amid a thriving medical career, she attended fashion seminars taught by leading industry professionals, and enrolled in courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Ezie was born of a desire to celebrate the modern woman balancing her roles with grace and style. Often influenced by her Nigerian heritage, Esther’s design style is marked by a unique blend of textures, colors, and prints, and her silhouettes offer a novel take on modesty through chic and yet sexy designs. No matter how elaborate and sensual the shapes and fabric treatments become, there remains an intentional focus on ease of wear.
Esther’s designs have been seen on the likes of Angela and Vanessa Simmons, Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily, news personality Tamron Hall, and Ugandan model Patricia Akello.
As a philanthropist, she has organized drives for women’s and men’s shelters, and worked to educate impoverished communities. Esther also mentors students exploring medical school.
“I always used my platform to uplift women, promote love and equality. That will never change.”
