    Mai is too lazy with his designs!!! All the dresses are designs that we’ve seen from other designers in the recent past! 2nd lady from left in pic 7 (a very similar dress was worn by Jennifer Hudson during her last performance at American Idol), 2nd lady from right dons an Ejiro Amos Tafiri design! I see Jlo’s dress (the lace shrug). Ohimai, just take a break and come up with original designs. This guy is so overrated

    He should stick to sewing suits for men. It is what he does best.

    il reserve my comments…that black sheer number has been seen on too many catwalks,please MAI make that extra push and quit serving us sleeping pills!

    sincerely dere’s nofin WOW here.

  • Bella Naija Critic September 12, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    yawn.. Mai needs to go back to the drawing board or stay at home literally. this was a snooze fest. and why o why is tht first model’s bra peeking thru the dress?

    Mai is definitely NOT overrated but agreeably, these pieces didn’t have the WOW factor. My guess is he wasn’t exactly prepared for the event but still wanted to maintain a presence, hence, the less than stellar work. I’m sure there are many more goodies up his sleeves. (He’s earned the right for me to make excuses for him…this time)
