House of Makeda was created by Teni, a musician and fashion designer. Her love of both music and fashion inspired her to create a house that is edgy, fashion-forward and unique, socially conscious and eclectic. She studied History at the University College London and African Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies and has soaked up a myriad of multicultural influences while there. She lives now in Lagos, Nigeria, working from the Makeda studio and fuses the African with Western and Eastern, the vintage with the contemporary to create a style that is powerful, classic and truly sophisticated. Makeda’s Mission is our initiative to make an impact on the problem of street children in Lagos. We design bracelets of precious stones and silk scarves and organize concerts and exhibitions to raise money for these vulnerable children.
