When I interacted with Ogo Offodile of Poodle Pushers last year, I was immediately impressed by her poise. I also made certain to let her know that I was very impressed and in awe of her personal style – I had no words to describe it. This was before PP emerged. Then, I saw the duo’s work?!?!? I have been flabbergasted ever since.

Poodle Pusher is a Fashion stylist company founded by sisters Chichi and Ogo. We are a dynamic duo whose core objective is successfully built on carrying out lifestyle changes and transformations through renewing the image of our clients.
How it all began?
As youngsters growing up in Nigeria, we always played dress up and later found that this passion only grew stronger as we got older. It basically took a life of its own and has now manifested into our fashion styling company Poodle Pusher. Although we never had any professional training in the fashion industry (We both received our bachelor’s degree in Management and Information Systems- Computer geeks by default and True Fashionistas by nature) we’ve always known that we had a knack for Fashion styling. In November 2008, we decided to start a fashion styling company that represents us as Individuals and encompasses our contrasting yet complimentary individual styles- Poodle Pusher was born.
Take on fashion?
Individual style last a lifetime; Trends come and go
What do you love about being a Fashion stylist?
For us it is the fact that we love what we do; the fulfillment we get from styling our clients and seeing the whole picture come together. A balance of loving the art form and being professional at all times is necessary to have a successful career as a fashion stylist. One of our greatest accomplishments thus far has been starting Poodle Pusher and creating a career for ourselves.
We definitely want to set our own pace, expand our horizons and push the limits of what we can achieve as Fashion Stylists. Although we are still new to the industry, we have been blessed with the opportunity to work with various industry professionals and veterans; so we can only hope that the best is yet to come and we look forward to what the future has in store for Poodle Pusher.
Poodle Pushers may be new to the fashion industry, but they have quickly made their mark – they came in with a bang, taking the industry by storm. How? They did their homework, and it shows. They continue to book work with noted fashion magazines in New York and their client list is growing rather fast. Did I also mention that some of the pieces featured were actually created by Poodle Pushers? When you’ve got it, you’ve got it. Just as simple as that!
