Maki Oh’s Fall 2016 Collection


Maki oh is all about femininity in this
fall collection, asking what it means to be a
black woman. The designs mirror the
complexity of what it means to be a
modern African woman in the world today.
“The collection uses markers such
as silk chiffon, pearls and ribbons to
move through the assimilative
performance of hyper-femininity that
is required of black women,
accentuated with frills and ruffles.
The shapes take direct inspiration
from traditional Nigerian
womenswear, particularly the
different voluminous blouses worn
with wrappers. Black female
resistance is represented in
appliquéd camouflage that contrast
with the light femininity of
performance. Varying
representations of eyes are repeated
heavily throughout the collection,
including a traditional Yoruba adiré
print of ‘inner eyes’ that represents
self-reflection and realization. The
eyes are also observing, an
indication of ‘we see you’ as well as
the inward ‘we see ourselves”
