Amaka Osakwe, aged 29 is a Nigerian fashion designer and creator of the African-based fashion label named Maki Oh.
She studied at the Arts University, Bournemouth where she received a BA in fashion studies. It was in autumn/winter 2010 she launched her label.
Very important personalities such as singers Beyonce and rihanna, Hollywood actress Kerry Washington Michelle Obama have worn outfits by the Nigerian designer outfits.
As a designer, Amaka Osakwe’s Maki Oh is always treading that thin line between enlightenment and blasphemy, but somehow always coming away from the tight rope with such an acute observation of Life in Nigeria.
Over her six year career, she has created a storied legacy, an in of sorts for foreigners looking to embrace something other than themselves and for us, a way to wear our idiosyncrasies as proudly as the ‘Ehn’ emblazoned across silk skirts.
