Odio Mimonet won the Innovative Designer of the Year award at the 2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week Awards. The veteran designer presented a vibrant and varied collection! While many designers shied away from using colours, Odio went in the opposite direction with popping colours and lots of sass.

      • gbeborun March 13, 2012 at 3:20 PM

        Am glad its not just me who noticed, fantastic work,great pieces but it doesn’t come together as a collection

      • Observer.... March 14, 2012 at 4:50 AM

        Exactly. as thinking the same thing.

    • Jania March 13, 2012 at 1:32 AM

      A world-class collection. The ideas here are real and show the thinking of a designer, not a tailor. I will look out for Odio Mimonet’s work in the future, I am truly inspired.

        Good luck with your faux inspiration

    • Babe March 13, 2012 at 1:46 AM

      This is a collection…definitely wearable….Thumbs up! Great work…

    • lar March 13, 2012 at 3:02 AM

      Seems almost everyone drank from the same fountain of inspiration. The difference was in the fabric.

      Would wear some designs- they might be overly priced though:-). Did they have me screaming “fantastic”! Probably not. Did they do a good job? I’d have to agree sans the “girls being on display”. I’m trying to get it oh! Its fashion, but don’t see someone running around in a sheer top or dress with the girls hanging out in Naija.

      first of al the model in the 11th pic needs serz help ASAP, like wat d hell..!!! n den d one in d 19th pic looks under-aged to start wit and it just seemed like she was sleep walkin on d runway. As for d collection, twas 50-50 for me, some were nice n some were…well…not so nice.

    • bukky March 13, 2012 at 5:10 AM

      I love

    • Raliah March 13, 2012 at 5:12 AM

      Can practically see myself wearing every single piece. Lovely pieces

    • Mafia March 13, 2012 at 5:58 AM

      I can see why its labelled “innovative”. Personally not a fan of mesh, but I do like the 3 I see in her collection. The long skirt is a new take on the see tru versions that are popular; and the print is Fab.
      The dress in pic #2 doesnt look like its fits the model well, but I would luv to get my hands on the one in pic #5.

    • missappleberry March 13, 2012 at 6:34 AM

      Really nice collection but no 2 dress was copied. Seen cheryl cole and kelly brook wear exactly same style in black last yr.

    • missappleberry March 13, 2012 at 6:35 AM

    • ms pretty March 13, 2012 at 7:48 AM

    • Sims March 13, 2012 at 1:54 PM

      As a man, I am constantly impressed with the way Odio continues to put out designs that are wearable by ladies across the board. It’s nice to have a designer that can do that for Nigerian women; now let’s hope we can see more for the men because we need oh!

    • I talk am March 13, 2012 at 2:35 PM


    • Alero March 13, 2012 at 2:49 PM

      I have one question: Please what is wrong or what will be wrong if the model’s breast (her pride) is covered(with ref to pic. 16)?

    • Habay March 13, 2012 at 3:46 PM

      Hmmmm luvly creativity watchout!!!

    • Junebug March 13, 2012 at 6:35 PM

      I really like the Ankara on crotchet/lace. That’s really novel. But there is a clear lack of a theme with this collection.

    • Jummy March 13, 2012 at 10:42 PM

      d silhouettes and structure shows several directions, d collectn lacks a theme. i’m quite confused!

    • Dee-USA March 14, 2012 at 4:41 AM

      I’m another 50-50 reviewer oh. Many of the looks aren’t flattering on the models. So I wonder what it’d be like for average women. Exhibit A: Amina’s look isn’t fitting. The TY Bello look alike has to walk down the runway holding up her dress (a no-no on the runway).

      An aside, did Agbani Darego walk the runway? I’ve seen a lookalike at a more than a few shows. I know she attended, but did she walk?

    • Chikaka March 14, 2012 at 10:40 AM

      My favourite Nigerian designer. Fluid and wearable pieces. Some fine models too. Kudos Mrs. Oseni.

    • Bex March 14, 2012 at 1:08 PM

      While the whole collection lacks a definitive theme, I think the individual pieces are awesome. Great tailoring, innovative designs and Practicality. I really like.

      P.s. love the 5th dress

    • cathy March 15, 2012 at 6:22 PM

      artistry pieces, i like

    • diva whisperer March 15, 2012 at 9:09 PM

      D@ wasn agbani on d runway. Twas Millen – a Tanzanian super model

    • BellaMay March 16, 2012 at 12:28 PM

      An interesting one to watch .. BellaNaija thanks for the pictures.

    • Merciful March 20, 2012 at 3:31 PM

    • alero binitie March 26, 2012 at 10:09 PM
