The 27-year-old Nigerian designer and creator of Maki Oh, Amaka Osakwe, has released her Fall 2014 collection. Maki Oh has been worn by Michelle Obama and Solange Knowles. Her clothing is handmade and dyed in a traditional textile process, Adire. Amaka also combines Western fashion with African materials and motifs, and focusses on the individuality of the woman who wears her clothing. Maki Oh was also shortlisted for the new LVMH Prize in 2014.

Aroused by a strong sense of identity and African culture, the brand creates alluring conversational pieces that fuse traditional techniques with detailed construction.
