About the Designer


My name is Michael Nwoke Lekwuwa (MNL), and I was born and raised in Nigeria. I picked up the interest in African fashion designs from my brother while still in high school in Nigeria and ever since then I have always loved the artistry in producing fashion products with African inspired print fabrics and styles.

Some of the reasons I love African prints are because some prints are inspired by things within the environment like animals, insects, plants, flowers, and colors. I am highly interested in activities that contribute towards the growth and global recognition of African fashion designs. 

All aspects of my designs are handmade and mass-produced at Aba, Abia State Nigeria and shipped worldwide from North Carolina, USA. African fashion is the new trend, and MNL Design is always evolving with the latest cutting-edge African fashion styles.
