We Are "Maki Oh" So Excited About Amaka Osakwe's Promising New Label!

Written By: MIM!Amaka Osakwe debuted her Autumn/Winter 2010 collection from her newly launched label, Maki Oh, to much fanfare. That's no surprise considering that the her refreshingly original Autumn/Winter 2010 collection brought something different to African fashion: texture, layers and a three dimensional aesthetic.

As the label explains, "Maki Oh design ethos is to challenge prevailing notions of beauty. It aspires to initiate a continuous recognition and appreciation for self and individuality through fashion. Aroused by a strong sense of identity and African culture, the brand creates alluring conversational pieces that fuse traditional techniques with detailed construction."

We are looking forward to seeing more from this promising young label. Take a look at the Autumn/Winter collection, Everything In Proportion, by visiting:
