This time out, designer Maki Osakwe‘s starting point was a Nigerian hair styling technique called threading, an inspiration she elaborated into her traditional attire prints, including one of a girl with threaded hair, and hairlike fringe embroidery. Osakwe fused her Nigerian references with coolly elegant Western silhouettes, notably pencil-lean dresses; the standout look here was a velour sheath with inserts of sheer material that produced a seemingly magical hang. The circular necklines and seaming on other pieces echoed the effect. Elsewhere, Osakwe explored more laid-back cuts, executing boxy tees, lapel-free jackets, and pajama pants. Check out the full Fall/Winter 2013 collection after the cut.
