Amaka Osakwe is a Nigerian fashion designer and founder of the Nigerian-based brand, Maki Oh launched in Lagos since 2012.
Having had her designs in the highly-recognized New York fashion week, Amaka Osakwe’s designs have a unique Nigerian, particularly Lagosian story to tell by the collection.
Her pieces feature indigenous Nigerian fabric the likes of Adire, locally crafted intricately, with a beautiful combination of western silhouettes.
Talk about Nigerian designers who have brought the Nigerian fashion industry to limelight, it is impossible to leave Amaka Osakwe’s Maki Oh out of the forefront of the list, having had her designs worn by international stars such as Beyoncé, and her sister Solange Knowles, Hollywood actress Kerry Washington, and even former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama did not want to be left out.
Amaka Osakwe’s Maki Oh is a world class work of beautifully fashioned art.
Thank you for putting Nigeria on the map globally.
