Although “some things are better in pairs” and “two heads are better than one” are cliché quotes when discussing twins, they are factual. These sayings emphasize power being in numbers, and this is especially true when going in-depth about the powerhouse companies and brands spearheaded by the three sets of twins listed. However, there is nothing cliché about these six women who exude effortlessness and embody their cultures, which are ideal representations of the world dominating #BlackGirlMagic movement.

Corianna & Brianna Dotson
Better known as Coco & Breezy, the innovative women who took the fashion industry by storm with their approach to creating one-of-a-kind sunglasses, grew up in Apple Valley, Minnesota. In spite of the fact that their suburban hometown is not exactly a melting pot of budding fashionistas, Coco and Breezy went against the grain to pursue their dreams. Luckily, their parents were in full support of their “wearable art.” Shortly after moving to New York City, the accessory line instantly took off due to hard work and true talent. Coco and Breezy’s line became no stranger to editorials, and many notable celebrities were seen in their eyewear including, but not limited to, Prince, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna.
Danielle & Chantelle Dwomoh-Piper
These two are triple threats. With titles such as models, bloggers, and designers, Danielle and Chantelle are slowly, but surely on track to conquer the world. Staying true to their vibrant roots in Ghana, their womenswear collections always consist of colorful, eye-catching prints. Their raw talent was honed in New York City by The High School of Fashion Industries, Fashion Institute of Technology, and internships at Marchesa and Shwartz & Benjamin. This invaluable experience prepped these ladies to have their merchandise seen on tons of celebrities and countless features in Marie Claire, Women’s Wear Daily and Essence, among many others. In addition to their fashion-based talents, Danielle and Chantelle are sure to always give back by raising “funds for several non-profit organizations.”
Cipriana & Takenya Quann
Cipriana and TK, the beauties from Baltimore with the big, beautiful hair, and impeccable style have been featured in a variety of places. Rightfully, but not surprising, they have been in Vogue, Essence, Huffington Post, Nylon and The Coveteur! Their chic and distinctive looks are definitely magazine worthy, but don’t mistake them for just eye-candy chosen for every best dressed list. Cipriana lives between NYC and Austin and is co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of UrbanBushBabes.com, a site that dives into topics regarding natural hair, fashion, health, music, film, lifestyle and arts & culture. TK is a songstress/songwriter who goes by the moniker, TK Wonder. In addition to her budding musical career, TK is also a contributor at Urban Bush Babes.
