In our view, Odio Minonet showed a disappointing collection at the just concluded Arise Magazine Fashion Week Lagos 2012. While it is great Arise wants to give visibility to as many designers as possible, quality over quantity should be the order of the day. It will reduce the amount of cancelled shows and model disputes, and most importantly, will push Nigerian designers to understand the distinction between tailoring and being a designer. Overall Odio Mimonet showed a disappointing collection which lacked any cohesiveness in thought process and execution and it was unclear who exactly the label was designing for. However, there was a glimpse of home with a few designs featured here.
Collections that simply should not have been on the runway
