We’ve been a huge fans of Maki Oh‘s for a very long time. The creative director, Amaka Osakwe, is one of the most creative people you’ll ever meet. A graduate of the notable fashion institution, Arts Institute, Bournemouth, she never disappoints with her clean cuts and her use of fabrics. She was recently featured on and here’s what they had to say about her Fall 2013, RTW Collection: “…Amaka Osakwe fused her Nigerian references with coolly elegant Western silhouettes…” *This Look Book was shot by the amazing Lakin Ogunbanwo  *Images from Love Always, Kike & Tobi  

My friend Lolade, is getting married today! Well, her Engagement Ceremony/ Traditional Wedding. I thought I’d do a quick post of my outfit. For our non-Nigerian readers, in our culture, the bride and groom choose a fabric (or fabrics) that their friends and family wear for the occasion. This is called “aso Ebi”. So here I am wearing Lolade’s aso Ebi. It’s absolutely Gorgeous; lace and velvet!
