Recho Omondi is a New York-based fashion designer and founder of the brand OMONDI hailing from Kenya. She honed her skills and tailored her career in fashion as a pattern-making student at Georgia's Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). After graduating, she went to work as an intern for Kimberly Ovitz; hence the clean lines and uncluttered aesthetics, both as evidenced in her Fall collection. Eventually, Omondi embarked on creating her namesake label.

OMONDI's eclectic pieces are influenced by both her Kenyan heritage and NYC lifestyle, where she challenges the idea of modernity in relation to the global, evolving woman. In her own words, Omondi believes "She's sophisticated, intelligent, culturally sensitive and uncompromising of who she is and where she comes from."

Her brand 'OMONDI' made its official New York Fashion Week (NYFW) debut for Fall 2015 as an instant fashion delight. Her collection brimmed with expert-tailoring and a soft, but powerful color range from blush pink to utilitarian army green.
