BUNMI OLAYE

...
Bunmi Olaye was born in Nigeria and came to the UK, aged 14 to study. After her years at school she nurtured her passion for art and fashion by undertaking an undergraduate foundation course at Wimbledon School of Art where she gained a National Diploma in Art & Design. She went straight on to study Fashion Promotion at the Kent Institute of Art & Design, which led to her working as a fashion stylist and illustrator in London.
Bunmi went on to work for luxury companies such as Anne Fontaine, Harrods and Prada before going back to study at the prestigious London College of Fashion, where she undertook the FdA Styling & Photography course. However, her desire to design and make clothes led her to further take a Fashion Design & Marketing Degree at the University of East London, where she was awarded a special prize for Female Entrepreneurship in 2010 and currently appointed by the Vice Chancellor as their ambassador for Female Entrepreneurship. Whilst studying, she made clothes for individual clients, most notably former Spice Girl - Mel B and in her sandwich year, she worked with couture designer Allison Rodger and Alexander McQueen. During this time she travelled to Aberdeen where she met Scottish based engineer and partner, Francis Udom and their union inspired them both to start Bunmi Koko. She is the Creative Director of the brand.
