Up and coming start, Tonye has been making her branded fashion statements of late.

From trying on various Nigerian designers such as ReBahia, Wana Sambo, Kiki Kamanu, Sisiano, Iamisigo and more, she is definitely set to show her patriotism for Nigerian brands.

Her latest fashion statement has got people talking.

Tonye stepped out in a black pin-striped Mai Atafo shift dress that has a striking resemblance to a President GEJ's regular attire, while in DC.

The unique piece is from the fashion brand’s 2014 collection which was showcased at the 2014 GT Bank Lagos Fashion & Design Week.

The South-South-inspired shirt dress features a gold chain & button detail and puffy sleeves all constructed on a pin-striped fabric.

She shared a couple of photos on her Instagram page, commenting that, “One of my favourite people and favourite designers!!!!! Wearing @Maiatafoinspired I never have to try too hard!!! Everything he makes is already a STATEMENT. Heading out to DC…“.

She also added hashtags like #GEJ #southsouthrepping  #southsouthprincess.

She paired her dress with tribal print-inspired shoes, her signature pixie and a black Chanel clutch with gold chain detailing.

Different and but unique, she assured of starting up a new fashion trend for us and it is definitely on with the traditional menswear-inspired womenswear trend.
