The designer, Amaka Osakwe continued to pay homage to her Nigerian roots by infusing African prints in a few pieces as well as a bold plastering of the popular Nigerian adage, ‘No condition is permanent’ on a nude blouse.

No condition is permanent
It was the designer’s subtle way of staying true to her roots

She has never been one to hold back on expressing her creativity or treading the edgy path and this collection is no different.

We saw cut-outs in the most random places like the red high-waist leather pants that featured a hole close to the crotch.

Spot the hole

The collection looks spontaneous and seems to be lacking in theme.

It’s definitely not her best collection but I don’t think it’s by any mile, a bad one.

Celebs like Genevieve Nnaji and Eku Edewor would fit nicely in the designs by Maki Oh
The designer’s never been shy to express her creativity
Nor has she kept from treading edgy paths
But this collection looks like one without a theme

A good number of the pieces will look good styled differently or as separates and totally see Eku Edewor and Genevieve Nnaji rocking some of the pieces.
