Ugo Mozie is amongst the fashion world’s noted fashion editors and stylists. Born in Nigeria, he grew up in Los Angeles and Houston, Texas. Mozie’s baptism into fashion occurred when he was scouted at the age of 14 to model for a renowned fashion line. After his brief modeling career, he graduated a semester early from Dulles High School in December 2008. The following week after graduating, he moved to New York City.
Shortly after the move to New York, Ugo Mozie and design partner Quinn Aston launched Aston Mozie. They showcased their first collection during the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week 2010; earning rave reviews from major publications including Paper Magazine, Elle Magazine, and New York Times. Through fashion design, he began exploring into the field of fashion styling. Mozie was able to catch on quickly on styling and creative direction. He was appointed at the age of 18, the fashion editor of Ghubar magazine, which made him the youngest ever, fashion director of an international magazine. He later became Fashion Editor At Large for 360 Magazine and a contributing editor for FAB Magazine London. Looking to diversify his career, Mozie began working with international superstars and magazines including Beyonce Knowles, Larry King, Kelly Rowland, Kelis, Lil B, Diddy, Dawn Richard, Omarion, Angela Simmons, Nylon Magazine, Paper Magazine, Tatler, Harpers Bazaar, Magazine and WAD.
After only four years and counting in the fashion industry, Ugo Mozie still continues to be one of the fashion industry sought after image and creative directors. He continues to collaborate with top photographers and designers to bring his visions to life.
