    Esé Azénabor - Taking the bridal industry by storm (Ep.66)

    Esé Azénabor - Taking the bridal industry by storm (Ep.66)

    On episode 66 on the Akeshi Akinseye Podcast, Akeshi chats with luxury fashion designer, Esé Azénabor. We talk about her journey as a fashion designer and taking the bridal industry by storm.

    We talk about:


    How she got started in the fashion industry
    How she got started in the bridal industry
    Some of he challenges she has faced as a designer
    How she pivoted during the covid-19 pandemic
    Her new couture collection - The Dream Collection
    Ese shares dress shopping tips for brides 
    and more.

    About Esé Azénabor:

    Esé Azénabor-Grembowski is the Owner and Creative Director/Head Designer for her name sake brand Esé Azénabor. Her Inspiration comes from the world's arts, cultures and most importantly, God.

    She designs for clients that love art and understand the craftsmanship that goes into each haute couture and bespoke garment. Esé Azénabor is known for her hand beading with fine crystals, stones and pearls, hand embroidery on fine French lace and tulle, her structuring with hymo, hard tulle, boning and attention to detail.

    This Nigeria born Canadian transplant got to Texas as fast as she could. Hailing from a family who considered fashion design more of a hobby than a career, Esé started designing at the early age of 8 Years old. She had to sweep her creative urges under the rug because her maiden name "Azénabor" was grounded in the fields of medicine, law, and engineering, and she, in turn, attended the University of Windsor in Windsor Ontario, Canada majoring in Accounting. A move to Dallas, TX followed, to pursue a Master’s Degree at Southern Methodist University, detoured to following her dreams and started designing handmade dresses for herself, friends and family.

    In 2012, without any financial assistance, this self-taught designer traded predictable college life for the wild world of fashion with the launch of her self-titled line. At her sewing machine, she conceptualized her fascination for heavy hand beading, crocheted lace, exquisite fabrics and embroidery. Inspired by a combination of vintage, African, and contemporary European influences, she merged cultures to create her Haute Couture Bridal and evening wear collections

    The Esé Azénabor brand has produced a total of 21 different collections. She is now one of the world’s sought-after designers. Her brides fly in from all over the World to get their Esé Azénabor Couture piece. Her designs has been seen on national and International stars such as Taraji P Henson, Tara Banks, Michelle Williams, country star Kelsea Ballerini, Latin super star Thalia, Vivica A Fox and so much more. The Brand has been published in Huff Post, People Magazine, Vogue, Cosmo, Essence, Munaluchi bridal, Morden Luxury Weddings, CEOMoms, to name a few.

    Esé Azénabor is a wife and mother and her goal is to empower women through the art of fashion.

    65. Tips on how to focus on the guest experience not guest size

    65. Tips on how to focus on the guest experience not guest size

    When it comes to celebrations, luxury is in the experience and its in the details! 

    In the age of social media and trends, when planning a celebration, it’s easy to lose sights of the experience you want to create for your guests.

    Wedding celebrations should not be based on size but the union itself. All celebrations should be embraced with an elevated guest experience in mind. Focus on the guest experience not guest size.

    Instead of worrying about the guest size, focus your attention on ways to elevate your guest experience.

    On this episode, I break down how you can do just that!
