Hey Guys!

So we’re kicking off our #naijabrandsrock initiative with the gorgeous and inspirational go-getter Ivie Omenai.

She is not only a fashion designer but also a retail entrepreneur. With a degree in fashion manufacturing she has worked on many private label collaborations for brands and celebrities such as Urban Outfitters, Serena Williams, Iman and Macy’s before moving to Nigeria and working with the Jumia Fashion department.

Her experience ranges from accessories to apparel to graphic & print design. She has since gone on to found 4 retail brands in Nigeria.  In the true spirit of the Naija Brands Rocks ethos she explains why although her brands are proudly Nigerian some of them are in fact manufactured outside of the continent. This however has not dampened her drive and focus on building her vision of a multi lifestyle company.

She is also an immensely talented artist. Specialising in hand illustration and CAD, fashion photography, marketing and brand management.
