Culture-fusion fashion designer and founder of Runway Dubai, Nigerian- born Modupe Omonze is surely an inspirational woman in fashion.
Her fascination with costume design and travel is the inspiration behind her work. Having studied the rich culture and heritage of the people of Trinidad and Tobago as well as that of the Arabs, she created her Afroarabian aesthetic. It is no surprise that she has been dubbed a “culture fusion genius.”
Runway Dubai, which she launched in 2013, is an event she created for up and coming designers to showcase their work. This annual show quickly gained recognition for being a platform for future trendsetters as well as for the initiatives it promotes such as autism, Down syndrome and breast cancer.
Modupe Omonze continues to make a difference with her love for fashion and humanity as her platforms promote ethics, inclusivity and diversity. She is an entrepreneur to watch and aspire to as she breaks boundaries and building a great fashion network.
