Style Sighting: Solange Knowles Spotted Again in Maki Oh at a New York City Store Opening

Exactly last week Monday, BN showed you a photo of International artiste and DJ – Solange Knowles at the Salvatore Ferragamo Fifth Avenue store Re-opening in a floral blouse by Nigerian Fashion brand – Maki Oh.

The starlet truly loves the Nigerian brand as on Thursday 19th April 2012 for the Splendid Soho Store Opening Party in New York City, Solange chose to wear a skirt off Maki Oh’s 2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week presentation. She accessorized the skirt with a $65 Splendid Scoop Neck T-Shirt, a stunning black-and-coral Mawi of London Pyramid and Gemstone Necklace, a matching bracelet, a gold armlet, a Lie Sang Bong Green Clutch and a pair of $795 Christian Louboutin Unbout Illusion Pumps.

    She did great justice to the skirt. Just like kourt kardash she is one fashion forward celeb and seeing our very own Maki oh’s design on her is a great achievement!

    Beautiful styling. I think this outfit was put together by two Nigerian sisters, Poodle Pusher. They also styled Brandy at one point.

    Nice. This is so major for Maki Oh Solange matches her design style too. Kudos to her onwards and upwards from here. Wow only wish the bigger stylist abroad such as these poodle pusher sisters will also come back home to help train other stylists here to grow the industry.
