2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week: Odio Mimonet

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…

    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
