Nigerian designer Amaka Osakwe’s acclaimed womenswear label, Maki Oh is inspiring in its use of African fabrics to create elegant contemporary designs. For its recently launched Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, Maki Oh employs the supremely popular traditional Yoruba tie-dyed fabric, adire and puts it to great use.
See photos and watch a brilliant fashion video for the collection starring beautiful Nigerian model Ujunwa Nwobodoh below.
P.S. Singer Solange Knowles, whose song ‘Look Good With Trouble’ is the video’s soundtrack, tweeted the following response yesterday:
