Ugo Mozie is a Nigerian celebrity stylist, entrepreneur and fashion activist.

Many know him because he has styled and created looks for celebrities such as Chris Brown, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Stevie Wonder, Justin Bieber, Travis Scott and Maluma but also for his work as wardrobe assistant on films such as Sex and the City 2. 

Mozie was born in Enugu, Nigeria, but moved to Los Angeles at the age of three with his family.

He attended and graduated from Barbizon School of Acting and Modeling and with the help of Jay-Z, he got his first modeling job in 2005.

At 18, he debuted his first fashion line, Aston Mozie, together with his design partner Quinn Aston and in 2015 he released his luxury hat line. From his start into the fashion industry during New York Fashion Week, people required his services as a stylist.

Ugo’s clients were his friends first and everything came together organically afterwards.

His work can now be seen in the pages of Billboard Magazine, Out Magazine, GQ Brasil, V Man, ODDA Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar China Men to name a few.

In 2014, Ugo was appointed the U.S. PR director to designer Vivienne Westwood.

In 2017 he introduced lifestyle and management into his brand and became the manager of model Adonis Bosso. Mozie is also an advocate for ‘Made in Africa’ luxury, with the launch of Mosaic Perfume–a high-end scent handmade by a master craftsman in Morocco.

Ugo Mozie encourages adding value to African societies, with the launch of his non-profit WANA “We Are New Africa”. He aims to represent who is ready to take control of the African narrative by empowering locals–rewriting the true African narrative one story at a time.

Mozie also co-created N’ChowLA together with Carrington Harris. N’Chow was a Nigerian cuisine delivery-only concept in Los Angeles. N’Chow is now Garrio, focused on West African cuisine.

He has held lectures and spoken at length on Cultural Diversity and the Business of Fashion at Oxford University, Harvard University, Columbia University, UCLA, and USC. With his charity WANA (We Are New Africa) and social media following, Mozie uses his platform to amplify positive African stories and is a passionate advocate of diversity.

Mozie lives in Los Angeles right now.
