The Designer | Ogake Mosomi
Ogake Bridal was established by Ogake Mosomi, a fashion school graduate of University for the Creative Arts (Rochester). Little did she know that her experience working at Antonia Pugh Thomas and Jenny Packham, both bridal designers in London would influence the direction of her business. Whilst creating a variety of bespoke fashion products, Ogake noticed a gap in the Kenyan market as brides were looking for gowns which fit their bodies perfectly and spoke to their personal style. In 2016 she made a big decision to focus on custom bridal gowns. This love affair is in line with the designer’s affinity for high end artisanal design and masterfully tailored clothing using a combination of classic techniques and creative, contemporary styling. Ogake is also a design lecturer, mentor, and coach and is passionate about design excellence and building the profile of the Kenyan fashion industry
“My greatest goal as a designer is to give women the opportunity to dream about their perfect wedding gown, but also to create products that will build the profile of #MadeinKE by maintaining high standards of quality and industry awareness”
