The Debut Lookbook! Maureen Ikem Sunny Rose presents its Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Lookbook

At the 2011 MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week, Maureen Ikem Sunny Rose unveiled its first ever ready to wear collection.

When we featured photos from the collection, the response was nothing short of phenomenal.
This is the lookbook for the collection and we are still loving it.

For years, Maureen Ikem Okogwu-Ikokwu developed her craft as an accessories designer and now her brand has grown to include Ready-to-Wear clothing.

Check on it.

  • OlannaBabyCakes January 30, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    Lovely designs. would have loved to see it on a curvier model too…

  • no dignity January 30, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Ps I dnt get dis…no creativity…seen dem all before so not interested…haba wt is dis

  • Joy January 30, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    these are nice designs, but i don’t think i would buy them, for a designer to use ankara fabrics that are worth buying in an actual store, the designer must do something unusual like jewel by lisa does, i would tell my tailors to make this for me at a cheaper price, but i cannot buy them, nice designs though

  • Babe January 30, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Love the designs…Well done Beth Models

  • iya oloja January 30, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Nice…but is one of the models underweight?….*just saying.

  • CaRaMeL SeXy NoNi January 30, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Awful designs from the begining, its got bera @ d end

  • Nnedi January 30, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    some nice… some okay!

  • cynthy January 30, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Lets call a spade a spade, tis designs ar horrible,i cant biv som1 sat dwn to do tis,its soooo plain sometin an obioma tailor can do,am luving Nuffin here

  • Joy January 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    bella naija, i think it is time that you educate some of your readers about weight! There are actually some people that eat a lot and are still skinny! it really isn’t fair what some people say sometimes, they are human beings too, how would you feel if someone was insulting you because you are curvy! I’m not even skinny but i have some skinny friends, and there is nothing wrong with being skinny, but there is something wrong with being anorexic !

  • Stacie January 30, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    I hate the first one, who would actually wear that. Some of them r nice but others just look good on the models with all the lights. Not really axcited about the collection.

  • tee January 30, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    not a fan of the designs but the fabrics are beautiful!

  • bukioni January 30, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Lots of lovely pieces and she chose some really eye catching prints. The right fabric makes all the difference and can really elevate a simple design above basic. And thumbs up on the tailoring too, the garments are well constructed.

  • Truth be told January 30, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    fresh air!

  • suggies January 31, 2012 at 8:09 am

    For those who say they can not buy them please go to oke arin and buy ankara since its only ankara you can see here and give them to iya risi your tailor to make these exact fabulous styles for you these are so not made for you

  • suggies January 31, 2012 at 8:11 am

    These clothes fit perfectly on both models

  • Odior January 31, 2012 at 9:11 am

    this simply beautiful……..

  • Lady G January 31, 2012 at 10:41 am


  • Asake January 31, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Am so happy to see how far Marvis has come…
    remembering the Face of Africa…. this is what you call humble beginnings

  • Nifesimi January 31, 2012 at 3:52 pm


  • speaktheword January 31, 2012 at 4:32 pm

  • fairangel January 31, 2012 at 5:29 pm


  • Mafia January 31, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Uhm.. that wrapper thing? I thought it was a dress! That is AWESOME! I wonder if I can pull off copying that over the summer w/ a pair of skinny jeans?? Just have to find the right Fabric…

  • temitope idowu-awe January 31, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    very original.

  • Ndidi January 31, 2012 at 7:16 pm

  • Myne Whitman January 31, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Most of the prints are awesome. Some of the designs too.

  • ally January 31, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    I LOVE! Eclectic, exciting and a stab at originality and yes the prints definitely take the designs to another level! Star pieces? The wrap dress, the dip-dye dress and oooh the fishtail dress with matching shrug. Well done Maureen-we’re fans!

  • Jacqueline Dwyer February 1, 2012 at 1:13 am

  • phoenix February 1, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    to all ya haters of this beautiful designs……. Art is an expression, you don’t have to like it.

  • RJ February 1, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Was getting ready to say how crap these designs were but then they started to get better, almost like there were two designers. The first half looks like any tailor could have sewn them but the second half is very exquisite. smh!

  • TOS February 2, 2012 at 7:28 am


  • shadeow February 2, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    there is something about the designs that remind me of Jewel by lisa……..its almost a copy and paste thingy

  • Ronke February 3, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Lovely designs… Moussa Moussa needs to chill on the Photoshop though..

  • Africhic February 3, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    I hardly ever comment on these fashion posts cos they seem so out of this world most of the time. This collection is lovely and wearable.

  • Love for Africa February 3, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Nothing new or inspiring…totally boring…

  • Boogie February 3, 2012 at 10:42 pm

  • Deja February 7, 2012 at 9:19 am

    I see Lanra Da-Silva in quite a number here…no?

  • Berry February 7, 2012 at 10:38 am

    Just looks too busy for my tastes. I’m literally dizzy. The simpler outfits are nice though.
