GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2014 – Day 2: Maki Oh



Maki-Oh-GTBank-LFDW-October2014-BellaNaija007We love Maki Oh and we were oh-so-eager to see her showcase at the 2014 GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week. It seems like so was everyone else as the reception for Amaka Osakwe was outstanding as she closed the show for the night.

The collection showcased by Maki Oh was one we’d seen before via her Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook but that certainly did not dull the shine of the collection.

Using her signature tie-dye approach, the collection was extremely feminine and alluring. According to Creative Director Amaka Osakwe, this collection is her most serious and it focuses on feminism using her signature aesthetics to tell the tale of the woman who is free spirited to make her decisions.

She offered us layers of patterned sheer fabrics, coated glitter skirts, tapered short dresses, rich cottons and dense mesh.

Check out the collection below!

    I am a fan (that being said, I am yet to see the prices) but I absolutely love this. Thank you for keeping with tie and dye.

    consistent, yet evolving, not be her most jaw dropping collection but definitely beautiful & should have been day 4’s closer. if she’s good enough to be recognised in the white house, why not at lfdw? we need to give credit when due & stop this “respect your elders no matter what” approach in everything, irrespective what. that said, she is doing great things, clearly.
