Curvy Never Looked So Good! Designer Makioba releases March Lookbook for Plus Size Women

Published

 on

Celebrating the essence of the Makioba woman, the March lookbook is especially poignant seeing as it coincides with the month of International Women’s Day.

With bold colours and intricate detailing, these clothes are designed to highlight all the fabulous aspects of a woman’s body. The prints, embellishments, and appliqués are evocative of traditional femininity in the sense that they frame different silhouettes in innovative forms all the while maintaining Makioba’s brand ethos of bringing couture sensibilities and contemporary style to plus sized women.

The lookbook features an array of signature Makioba dresses as well as separates that could very well be staples in women’s wardrobes. From the easy bell-sleeved blouses to the body flattering midi dresses rooted in the Creative Director’s love for 1940’s styles. The future is female and how best to sojourn into it than to be decked in these chic pieces?

    I admire Makioba’s vision for plus size fashion. However, her pieces are sometimes too pricey for cheap embroidery and lyrca.

    Similicious, you are so right. Makioba use very affordable, not so good quality material, but is quite expensive though.
    I wonder why she does not research the materials that she uses. Look at the fabrics of Danre Da Silva or ohgfabrics for instance. Makioba seriously needs to improve on fabrics.
    But we must give her credits for her inspiration, never give up attitude and good designs. Makioba is someone to emulate, such a hard working woman who took the risk to pursue her dream by giving up on a well paid job in the maritime industry.

    I admire what Makioba is doing. I am a designer and I have always believed that plus sized individuals can also embrace fashion and style. My sister is curvy, I love how she embraces fashion and styles herself so well. This is a nice collection.
