Fashion Lookbook: Maki Oh Spring 2015 RTW Collection.
Watching the progress of Nigerian designer Amaka Osakwe’s clothing label Maki Oh, a play on her first and last names, has been one of the most rewarding experiences in African fashion and design.
Always keeping her feminine appeal and awareness intact, where last year’s Spring 2014 RTW collection was an exciting mish-mash of colours, cuts and silk sensuality, she returns this year with a range that sees a complete aesthetic departure from where she was a year ago.
Using a palette that includes a similar shade of indigo, inspired by Yoruba Adire textiles, that she made use of in her Fall/Winter 2014 RTW collection, Amaka’s Spring 2014 RTW line is a mixture of exquisite simplicity and classic simplicity. Not that any of this is new for Amaka. We’ve seen her take on similar silhouettes as far back as her Fall/Winter 2013 collection - one of her best to date.
