M.A.F Couture's Collage Lookbook For S/S 14

M.A.F Couture by Mary Tataw Eyere presented their 'Dry Gold' Spring/ Summer 14 lookbook.

M.A.F Couture, by designer Mary Tataw Eyere, recently unveiled Dry Gold, a lookbook for their Spring/Summer 14 collection. According to Tataw, the looks are made for a "fashionable African woman in her mid 20s that has been to the big city and experienced fashion, fame and glamour... And this summer she decided to go back to her hometown and enjoy the summer in the wild. She stays glamorous while acquainting with nature." A great idea for the season, Tataw paid strong attention to detail in crafting her gorgeous fabrics. What we love the most is the collage style lookbook. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #mafcouture.
