We are still on the march to take Nigerian Fashion and Luxury from Africa to the rest of the world, so if you are not already on the #WearNigerian #BuyAfrican band-wagon, then where are you really? There is a re-awakened desire to support more home made brands now in Africa, because most of the indigenous designers have proven themselves to be extremely skillful and beyond worthy of every single global recognition they are all getting right now. In this age of social media fashion and the power that it possesses, it is way easier for designers and influencers to use their voice and their personal style to influence consumer choices far beyond their niches and borders.
This is the case of Nigerian Women’s wear designer Mae Otiti, who is one of the leading new-school designers that has broken-out of the Nation and is excelling globally thanks to her stand-out, exquisitely tailored Ready-to-wear pieces. From her perfectly crafted pant suits, to her brightly colored sophisticated ankara dresses to her modern take on jackets and coats, everyone really truly wants to be a Mae Otiti woman.
Fashion blogger Jennifer Oseh (@theladyvodkha) styled her custom-made Mae Otiti suit the three-piece way, coordinating her wide-legged pants with the matching longsleeve and jacket to go, while power player and patroness of the #WearNigerian movement Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, ditched the longsleeve and paired her pant suit pair with a Nubian colored camisole.
Street style savant Angel Obasi (@styleconnaissuer) took the highly-coveted pair to the streets for a photoshoot. 6-inch blue heels tall, she showed off her svelte figure in the multi-colored piece, complete with a skinny gold belt and accessories to match.
And last but certainly not the least Bonang Matheba! Africa’s most fashionable media personality also sported the suit as she posed for Schick Magazines monthly issue. Dropping earrings, a chunky neck-piece, cat-eye shades and an embellished heels. Bonang definitely did the designer and her fit justice.
The infamous MAE OTITI suit is called the brands ZYLA set, you can shop it right here alongside other fabulous designs.
Who styled the outfit better? You be the judge.
