Bunmi Olaye has had a great career so far, and considering she only graduated from UEL in 2009 and set up her label Bunmi Koko in the same year, she has done pretty well for herself! Her and her partner Francis Udom were on JP Morgan's Powerlist 2011. Her graduate collection and collections to follow blew audiences away. There has been great interest in her pieces from the likes of Michelle Obama and Mel B, who has been spotted in a few of her dresses. Bunmi Koko focuses on ready-to-wear and couture pieces influenced by her Nigerian heritage and her husband's Scottish background.
Here are some of her great designs, that helped land her a spot at NYFW this year!
