Popular African Women’s Wear Brand “Grassfield” Announces Their Shut Down

By Chichi Azozie

Popular women’s wear brand Grass-field has announced the closedown of its brand and business. The Cameroonian twin sisters, Michelle and Christelle made this announcement on their Instagram page four days ago.

They wrote:

We are closing.

It is with immense sadness and pain we are closing Grass-fields. For the past 3 years, my twin sister Michele has been silently battling a lengthy illness and we have finally reached a breaking point. The countless surgeries and brutal medication may not have been enough to give my sister her life back. I am now facing the harsh possibility that my twin, my soulmate, the person whom I have battled through this life with, may not have much longer left here. My heart breaks for not just myself but for her children who might not get to spend any more birthdays or Christmases with their mother, and a husband that may have to say goodbye to his wife.

We have both fought for so long but can no longer juggle the stresses of running a business with the uncertainty of Michele’s health and everything in between. I don’t know where we go from here and I am unsure of the future of Grass-fields, but it’s clear that we need to step away and take a break to work out how we can navigate this undetermined time.

Michele and I thank you for the support over the last 9 years.

I hope that you can hold my sister and me in your prayers tonight.

Thank you for everything.
