Founded by designer Titi Ademola Perez, KIKI Clothing is a fashion brand passionate about blurring the lines – the lines that form the borders between continents and the lines between traditional apparel and modern style. We create garments that fit with the needs and wants of today's international woman.
The business began life as an African-inspired Childrenswear brand, known as KIKI for Kids. The designs proved popular, but we were inundated with customers requesting adult versions of the girls’ clothes we were making, and soon the demand to move into Womenswear proved too strong to resist. The brand name eventually evolved into KIKI Clothing, specialising in Womenswear, and a small collection of Childrenswear available in our store in Ghana.
Traditional bespoke tailoring has long been the mainstay of fashion production in Ghana, and although we offer the option to custom-make our designs, our focus is on high quality, ready-to-wear collections. KIKI Clothing is poised to meet the needs of modern, style conscious, discerning women.
With an emphasis on in-house production within Accra, Ghana, KIKI Clothing is known for its vivid fusions of mixed prints inspired by West African textiles and minimalist, contemporary silhouettes. KIKI Clothing's approach is bold, dynamic and effortless in style.
We have had the privilege to bring our ready-to-wear designs to a global audience. Our clothes have graced the pages of numerous international publications, including Britain’s The Telegraph newspaper, ELLE Italia and US Vogue, in which KIKI clothing was photographed by world-renowned photographer, Mario Testino, and worn by Oscar-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o.
As a fashion brand, we have been honoured to work with the International Trade Centre on various projects, including The Ethical Fashion Initiative, designed to give global attention to African artisans, with a strong focus on sustainability.
We were also proud to feature in the exhibition ‘African-Print Fashion Now’, which travelled to a number of art and design museums in the US and produced an accompanying book available through Amazon. We will continue to shine a spotlight on African print and its place in modern design, which KIKI Clothing and the wider fashion industry in Ghana can bring to the world stage.
“After studying at the London College of Fashion and graduating from the American InterContinental University in Atlanta, Georgia, I had a strong desire to move back to West Africa, given my Ghanaian/ Nigerian heritage. Although born in London, I was frustrated with the negative representations of Africa in the global media and therefore, passionate about showcasing a more positive, progressive side of my part of Africa through fashion. Mixing classic cuts and a colour clash of African-inspired prints with clever tailoring is our signature. We are known for our unique way of mixing two different prints together, creating an array of beautiful, unique colourways.” – Titi Ademola Perez, founder of KIKI Clothing
