    MOST women in Nigeria are big boned like Taje – and african men love it, so i say kudos to the designer, cos while many designers are copying the west and doing clothes for skinny toothpick girls, you are the few making clothes or bit girls like Taje.

    Toolz at least you have a place to shop now.

      Must you be rude while dishing out your opinion? Calling slim girls ‘skinny toothpick girls’ is just wrong.

    Beautiful and yes, sultry but not particularly daring. Really good to see more stylish options emerging for curvier ladies.

    Taje! Slay mama!!! Love how you slay on your Wedding Guest series, and now this! That blue jumpsuit is giving me life mehn. Good job Makioba, like Christian Siriano of the US, big and beautiful girls are finally getting the same level of attention the smaller girls have been enjoying. Keep it up.

    I love the jumpsuit, but that first outfit that is looking like snuggie with lace/sequined strap?! Nah men.

      you really are despicable, and crass. what kind of nonsense talk is this? i’m sure you have female family members who are plus size. i hope you won’t mind it if someone expresses the same about them.

    Nice clothes but darling Taje always reminds me of yokozuna with her poses, any tope abiola has taught me not to look at any tailor on the instagram

      This Fifi I noticed you are always attacking this Taje. You’re clearly jealous of her. I have never seen you post a positive comment about her. You’re sad. Get a life. SMDH

      Cuz i dont have anything positive to say, like i said the clothes are nice but her poses are not,she should dress more like this not those tacky tight and ill fitted clothes she wears

    Taye is really pretty but I think she should lose a bit of weight. The long dresses she wears at weddings make her look bulkier. She wasn’t this big the first time I saw her.
