GET TO KNOW US
OYATO can be you or the clothes on your back. In the Yoruba language it simply means something or someone that is different. We are a womenswear brand committed to enhancing the wardrobe + overall look of a woman. All women are different so we look to produce fly pieces that will reflect their uniqueness.
Our head designer, Odunayo Ade, could never truly fit in growing up mainly due to her Nigerian background until she found her voice through fashion. Not only did she realize it was fashion forward to incorporate fabrics that celebrate her African heritage but important to expose a different kind of beauty within Africa to world. She wants to rewrite the narrative.
For the past ten years, OYATO has grown tremendously, from creating bespoke gowns for clients, to showcasing our collections on runways across the US + abroad, to dressing some of heavy hitters in the entertainment industry. However, opening up this avenue for you, our customers, to shop with us has been our biggest accomplishment to date. Designing garments that are made with love from the heart of Nigeria + bringing to your closet.
There is so much more ground to cover + all we ask is that you follow us along the journey!
