Fashion Model, Model Agency Owner, Fashion Designer and Singer Liz Ogumbo is one to watch. The woman with many creative hats launched her clothing line (House of Imani) in 2006 and this year had a big break as one of the many African designers to showcase at the first ever Pan-African Arise Africa Fashion Week.
Independent of her clothing line, Ogumbo who spent ten years in the United States, in 2004, launched Imani Models modeling agency, an agency based in Nairobi, Kenya. Today Imani Models is one of Nairobi’s leading modeling agencies. When Ogumbo is not busy juggling running a fashion label with a model agency, she manages to drop some solid jazz/neo-soul tracks that is bound to get you grooving.
Keep your eyes on Liz Ogumbo. She is definitely one to watch!
