Loved in recent times by A-list celebrities such as Beyonce’s younger sister Solange Knowles, “the 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 culture, the brand creates alluring conversational pieces that fuse traditional techniques with detailed construction.
The essence of the label stretches beyond physical beauty to a textured, layered and three-dimensional aesthetic, embodying the philosophies of preservation, strength, movement and complex simplicity. The seduction of Maki Oh is in its unison of emotion, intuition, sex and fashion”.
The Spring 2013 collection of the brand showcased last September at the ARISE Magazine’s fifth collective at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week (NYFW) Spring 2013 tagged ‘African Icons’ saw Maki Osakwe’s (Creative Director) passion for couture and culture, the designer believes cultural heritage must be kept alive. Sustainability and ethical practices are also principles she strongly embraces in her use of fabrics and designs in this collection.
The Spring 2013 collection comes in separates; skirts, trousers, blouses as well as dressed.
The collection is simple and gorgeous, we simply love the attention to detail.
