THE BACKSTORY

Odio Mimonet is a brand that came in very handy when I styled Chigul for the Cover of the Monthly ACCELERATE magazine

– THE COVER

Prior to the shoot, and because prep was very last minute…

(tardiness is a sickness I’m fighting)

I found myself searching frantically for an outfit that would successfully enhance Chigul’s features and complement her frame.

Based on Chigul falling on the curvier side of things, this was very much a task!

But because we were going for a very

‘I made an effort but did not do too much’ Vibe

I was certain that I’d emerge from the outfit sourcing, victorious.

Having reached out to the popular couture names in the fashion game,

I was so disappointed to see the harsh reality of fashion

(in Lagos and the world)

staring back at me.

Many of them were unable to find me a plus-size piece or even just any outer garment/outfit to flatter a non-averaged sized model.

 

Almost every Nigerian fashion brand has failed at being inclusive with their collections.

But that’s a story for another day.

 

Thankfully Odio Mimonet came to the rescue

And they did so with over-the-top prints and unique handcrafted kimonos.
