Inside Story: Darlene and Lizzy Okpo's Brooklyn Apartment

Inside Story: Darlene and Lizzy Okpo's Brooklyn Apartment

The designers' living space pulls double duty

Darlene and Lizzy Okpo regularly respond to emails at 5:30 a.m.

The Bronx-born and -raised sisters behind clothing line William Okpo (named for their father) are readying their first-ever solo presentation for New York Fashion Week, and sleep is not in the cards.

In today’s Inside Story video, we catch up with the women during preparations. They show us around their Brooklyn apartment/studio (where the living room floor subs as a pattern-making table), let us peek at mood boards for the upcoming collection, and tell us how it all came to be.

As if they aren’t already inspiring enough, Darlene and Lizzy are just 25 and 22, respectively.

Which might further explain why their sleep habits resemble those of babies.
