The Maison Georgette brand was born of the vision that Cee Asiegbu had for fashion. Growing up in her home country, Nigeria, Cee noticed that the fashion in the marketplace that her peers wore did not suit her. Instead, she opted for finding fabric to design her own clothes and piecing together accessories in an abstract way. That pursuit of custom style only intensified when she moved to the US in 1986 and saw fashion from all over the world in one place. She chose to design her outfits which were sewn for her. She even went to the same lengths to have her own wedding gown custom-made to her style! And so began Cee’s journey to design and production.
Over the years, Cee’s design appeal grew and gained momentum with every outfit she created. Each design project gave her the opportunity to share her style with others, and every piece she sold fulfilled her mission to beautify and empower others with her sense of style. Today, Maison Georgette embodies Cee’s desire to set the trend instead of following one. Maison Georgette is a movement to bring forth that style with heart, which will pique the interest of women who take pride in a sharp sense of fashion.
