an #ecofashion update: Special Report: Maki Oh, made in Nigeria

But it’s never just about tradition: Maki Oh explores what it means to know your past, but is just as interested in what it means to be a contemporary woman at ease with her body and sexuality. For her debut collection, Osakwe painted swirls that circled and accentuated a woman’s breasts, a reference to the ceremonial nudity of a coming-of-age Dipo ritual from rural Ghana and a winking nod to the notion that what might be considered improper in some places is beautiful and natural in others. For her spring collection, prim blouses that button to the neck have peek-a-boo slits on the chest and dresses made for curvy women have hip-accentuating strips of velvet. “A mature woman can wear underwear in public and not be seen as a sex object.” Dignity and respect are the traditions that Osakwe hopes will last.
