Lagos-based designer and creative director for Maki-Oh, Amaka Osakwe, has never failed to wow us with the thought processes to her collections and this one is no exception. For this collection, firstly, she draws inspiration from philosophical questions of endeavour and also the Yoruba trick called “Arodan” in which parents send their bored kids to neighbor’s homes in search of Arodan, something that doesn’t exist. A search in futility.
This collection is executed with (the trademark) adire (Tie-dye) fabrics in different patterns – from tear drops to “jagajaga” (zigzag) in hues such as black, deep browns and white. Also lurex mesh, scalloped hems and fringe, flares, off-the-shoulder silhouettes and cut outs.
