KIKI KAMANU

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the bold and unique intricacies  of African traditional textiles, with designers from across the globe now using these stunning fabrics and prints to create stunning contemporary pieces.

KIKI KAMANU is one fashion label that fills this growing interest in the African fusion apparel market for ready-to-wear women’s clothing.  It adeptly blends African prints and fabrics with traditional western and other materials to create an entirely new and unique look for the discerning fashion consumer. 

The force behind this stunning range Kiki Kamanu worked with Ford modeling agency in Boston and had the honour of modelling for several top designers including, Chanel, and Gucci.  The diversity of her experience is reflected in her spectacular creations.  Her designs have featured in London Fashion Week, ARISE Magazine Fashion Week, American, Nigerian and Turkish media and appeared on CNN International.  She has developed a faithful following in Nigeria and United States with singing group Les Nubians and Susan Taylor, Editor – Emeritus of Essence named as a few of her growing supporters.

 Her label comprises of four lines: Z.bird – women’s diffusion line, Omakáa - women’s ready-to-wear, EKZ - menswear and Arm Kandy – handbag and accessories.  The label’s mission is to be the first internationally recognised fashion brand with a world-class production and manufacturing base in West Africa driving large-scale exports to international consumers.  To this end, KIKI KAMANU has partnered with a local skills acquisition and production centre created by virtue of the AGOA (the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act) initiative to attain the export standard level of production.

What we love about KIKI KAMANU is the dedication to social development, promoting the concept of fair trade through its employment of local artisans and through involvement in various charitable and educational activities.

We will be keeping a close eye on this brand, look out for updates
