As a make-up artist, he has handled television commercials for a lot of Nigerian organizations such as Macleans Toothpaste, Ultrasheen, Chocolate éclairs, Indomie Noodles and others.

Frank has been in the fashion industry since 1989 but his label, House of Bunor started about 15 Years ago and has clothed the most high profile people in Nigeria.

His name reached the household mark when he was selected by Silverbird to be the make-up artist and designer that finally led Agbani Darego to her reign as Miss World 2001. Since then the name Frank Osodi has been associated with simple elegance and effortless beauty. He described the Agbani Darego Miss World outfit as “a simple deep yoked outfit, chosen just for simplicity and the preferred color – green to portray Nigeria.”

“She (Agbani Darego) was introduced to me by the Pageant Manager of Silverbird Production after she won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria contest. I was asked to groom her for the Miss World 2001 contest, that is, handle her make-up not only for the contest but also for the duration of her reign as the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria,” Frank told an online Magazine during an interview.

“It has brought me to the limelight as everybody is curious to know about my designs.”


He has since spear headed events that brought Nigerian fashion to the forefront with programs like the West African Fashion Week 2008. He still remains a force to reckon with in the Nigerian fashion scene specializing in Bride and bridesmaid garments. His pieces are quintessentially African inspired.
