        I agree, Arise Fashion Week wasnt really a trend setting event which is important if its going to be taken seriously globally.

  • dorothy March 12, 2012 at 12:29 am

    just seems the models picked dresses outta their own wardrobes and strutted down the runway.

    am also an upcoming designer, i just feel most designers dese days r lazy, we do not give much thought ,research to the work like we shuld. imagine other professions say medicine 4 example, wen a new cure is 2 b released 2 d public, we all know d amount of work , research, efforts that is put in2 it, bt in fashion 2 become a designer and release a collection , most people do absolutely no research as a result we ve all dis mediocre collectn . as designers we r suppose 2 set d trends, do futuristic styles nt jst make somethings sha n release.

    i hp 2 release ma 1st collection soon, n wen i do i hope it brings smiles 2 all faces, a cure 4 a fashion disease

  • Mena Oudha March 12, 2012 at 10:35 am

    just too plain and simple. there’s nothing stylish about this collection.

  • fokasibe March 12, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I don’t think there’s anything here we haven’t seen before….

  • Eggy*Posh March 12, 2012 at 10:55 am


  • Adedoyin March 12, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Apart form the 1st and 2nd dress which i like, the rest are NO! NO! for me….

  • pynk March 12, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    is this a runway collection?

  • chacha March 12, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    looks so amateurish not at the standard sorry

  • lola March 12, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Mie u hit d nail on d head! I think I have better outfits in my wardrobe than what this designer turned out perhaps she needs to get some inspiration from my wardrobe am just bored with this collection.

  • mary March 12, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    stop hating on her. i have seen her previous collection, and some of her works. they were very nice and wearable. she is on the simple side. not everybody has to over do it. so lets encourage her. she’s an upcoming designer. stop the hate

    • moff March 16, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      its not hate, you are called a designer cos you DESIGN clothes……she didnt design any of this stuff. she just copied primark designs. its sooo boring!!

  • Dee-USA March 12, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Simple shouldn’t mean no creativity or design whatsoever. She just gave us a few pieces from every Obioma’s look book out there. Hitting the snooze button.

  • Deeda March 17, 2012 at 8:03 am

    Edgy, classy, modern and sophisticated…I love

  • temitope March 23, 2012 at 12:19 pm
