This is Omina's first Fashion Summit during Costa Rica Fashion Week. Omina comes from the Latin and means omen, presagio, presaggio. They are the signs that warn us about the future. Omina is a non profit initiative created to inspire people to change their mindsets to a more sustainable lifestyle by sharing the insights of global luminaires, innovators and disruptors. We are proud to be part of the initiative and helping in bringing awareness to the importance of water, waste and making sustainability fashionable.
