Simply EliFab is a Children's clothing and accessories brand with African Influence.
We started out in 2014 as an accessories and girls only brand but we have since evolved to meet all kids fashion needs. We became Simply EliFab in 2019 after expanding our collections beyond accessories.
EliFab started out as a labor of love and the desire to add something unique to my precious little girl’s everyday looks.
Soon enough, that desire grew into sprucing up other precious little heads.
Over the years, we have designed, created and handmade thousands of bows and headbands because we truly love what we do and enjoy adoring the little ones.
Being of African decent (Nigeria to be exact), introducing African prints into our brand has always been forefront and center for us. It was just a matter of time in bringing it to life and making the kids shine. The Ankara fabric (Dutch Wax 100% cotton fabric with vibrant pattern) common to the West African countries are fun, vibrant, energetic and elegant, making it perfectly suited for kids.
Our goal is to put kids front and center of Ankara fashion. Whether you're looking for a formal, play or casual outfit, we have your kids covered. We will provide the outfit to refine their looks and elevate their wardrobe and complementary accessories.
Another one of our goals is to support local businesses and women both from my home country, Nigeria and in the U.SA. We are happy to make strides in this area by having part of our clothes made in Nigeria. Our goal is to continue to expand our sources and suppliers both in Africa and in America.
Our pieces are designed to grow with the little's with our comfort fit and versatility in mind. Each piece can easily be transitioned between seasons with a goal of kids wearing our collection and prints all year round. Layer on or under, pair with tights or sock and embrace the prints all year round.
We believe whether young or old, your style should be effortless and speak for itself.
We are proud of our Cute, Minimal, and Elegant designs and we are grateful for letting us be part of your kids wardrobe stable.
Christiana Okuwobi, Owner & Founder of Simply EliFab, is Nigerian born and raised. She immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 16, completing the latter part of her secondary education (high school) and going on to earn her undergrad in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University.
Christiana loves all things fashion. She started blogging about fashion and life in general while in-between jobs over at Christiana's Corner in 2012. The birth of her daughter Eliana also gave birth to EliFab. Girls' fashion was intuitive for Christiana and she gave no thoughts to designing for boys until the birth of her second born, Emmanuel. At first she had doubts about her ability to incorporate boys' fashion into the line, but as it turns out, she was made to do this! Christiana's love of fashion and style for all tots continues to grow.
Christiana takes pride in her rich Nigerian heritage and culture. That combined with her love for prints and colors ignite the flame to branch out beyond accessories and into clothing, but not any clothing; African Ankara print based clothing for kids.
Building this brand has been a dream come true for Christiana. It has been a lot of trials and triumphs, but she wouldn't have it any other way. Apart from tirelessly working on building and growing Simply EliFab, Christiana is a wife, mom of two beauts, moonlights as an Engineer by day, and is currently pursuing her Master's in Quality Management
