Designer Makioba Onigbile entered the Nigerian fashion scene some time ago and has carved a niche for herself, especially in designs for plus-size women.
Makioba has released her latest collection tagged ‘The Body Positivity Issue’ and it is full of positive vibes.
The brand is known for designing plus sized clothes and you won’t be mistaken if you tag her as the first plus-size designer in Nigeria.
Her designs conceal the necessary parts that the plus-sized are not comfortable with and still make them look elegant, smart and beautiful.
Creative Director, Onigbile notes that: “Makioba’s collection aims at helping every woman exercise her right to be fabulous and elegant no matter her size. This is really a good objective as in Nigeria and the world at large, the plus women are a bit looked down on especially when dressed, as some of their clothes don’t really look attractive on them.”
The brands style fuses pattern, print, exquisite elements and traditional artistry to produce day wear, evening wear, gowns and cocktail dresses that bridge time.
The collection dubbed ‘The Body Positivity Issue’ boasts of the finest materials crafted with superb floral details, stunning lace prints and fringed details woven in the top notch craftsmanship that is synonymous with the brand’s name.
