For The Love Of Adire! Maki Oh Wants To Be The ‘Ala Koba’ In Your Life As She Unveils The Ala Koba Collection At NYFW 2018 | Lookbook

Amaka Osakwe of Maki Oh titled her latest collection ‘Ala Koba’, which is roughly translated as “someone who gets you into trouble.” Her watchword for this collection was ‘Lazy Sensual’. She decided to explore the idea of lingerie dressing and what a woman wears behind closed doors for Fall.

Amaka opened the show — her first runway presentation at New York Fashion Week — with a coat covered in her trademark adire. This was not a line of slip dresses as the outfits paraded are hardly what you might call revealing, though the curvilinear shape alluded to the body in a flattering way. Amaka made more direct references to pretty little underpinnings with her use of lace, splicing her floaty dresses with a shot of naughtiness. The collection may have been centred around sensuality but there was a certain the ease to the outfits that resonates with the typical African woman.

A look at the collection…
