@Maki_Oh (Nigeria): “I have put my ‘AMFW Designer of the Year’ Award on my dining table, beside an amethyst candle holder and other awards I’ve won. I’m excited about the whole line-up ARISE has chosen. Great times ahead…” I’m never gonna get tired of saying that Maki Oh does not look to the left or the right to see what other designers are doing, she just does her own thing. Her work emotes deep thought and purity most likely obtained in solitude. She’s a shining star for the continent and would go on to inspire a new generation of young talented African designers. Celebs like Solange Knowles and LeeLee Sobieski are big fans of the brand.
