A look at Mai Atafo’s The Heart Collection


Nigeria’s multi award-winning fashion designer Mai Atafo wowed guests at the recently concluded Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards (ASFAs) with his latest collection. We take a walk down memory lane to have a close look at the outfits that were part of The Heart Collection under the Wedding by Mai Atafo brand.

The collection draws inspiration from Belle and her heart decisions in Beauty and The Beast. That explains the mask and dance during the runway showcase. The gowns are perfectly made for the bride who follows her heart when picking her dress, without religious, budgetary, friends or family constraints.

Decisions made with the heart are made out of love and love is the one thing that drives everything in life, this collection is an ode to brides and an inspiration to others because I always #FollowMAIHeart”. He is quoted to have said during a private showcase in Nigeria.

The unconventional colours he opted for like nude, pink, blue and paired them with soft corsets and couture structured gowns express a modern day bride who has a strong heritage.

The men’s suits were cut to perfectly fit the modern man with colours and fabrics and put together to exude classiness.
