Designer Omondi Is The Next Game Changer
Omondi, an emerging fashion designer with a voice just as strong as her clothes is a force to reckon with. Her work as seen on the hit show Insecure has garnered attention from artist such as Solange, SZA and more. Omondi aside from creating works of art through her designs, proudly marches to the beat of her own drum when it comes to the fashion industry and speaking out on very necessary issues; some being launching her collections on her time and not the standard seasonal calendar of the fashion industry.
Her work encompasses so much and she has just gotten started. Omondi has contributed to inclusion in the fashion industry, has proudly shied away from superfluous inventory by producing her work from deadstock fabrics and using smaller quantities when generating garments. Omondi has also spoken out about the need to get back to the idea of using real supermodels and not just kids who have the perks of being related to someone in the industry. She has also spoken about the fashion industry as it pertains to recording artists and they’re more likely to reach a certain level of success faster than a designer themselves and so much more.
You know in Titanic how, when the ship is going down, there's this four-string quartet that keeps playing? That's the fashion industry," she says. "They know the ship is sinking, they know there are problems, but they're just like — we're not going to stop, we're not going to address anything.
Omondi strong in vocally speaking out, in her talent and work and proactively doing things to help contribute to adjusting and shifting the fashion industry, we believe will not only have longevity in her career but will reach new heights in her career that she sets out. It is no doubt that this emerging fashion designer's work will not only continue to be recognized, but will also shift the narrative.
