Niki Moyo

Niki Moyo is a London based Premium Womenswear Fashion Brand, helping women gain confidence in themselves and their bodies by expressing their unique individuality in unique, quality styles without any creative and sizing limitations.

Niki Moyo believes true beauty is on the inside and a woman should proudly celebrate that beauty by wearing the best styles that reveal and showcase her unique and true nature.

Niki Moyo is inspired by Nature, which is the epitome of beauty. In other words, Mother Nature is what sparks the creativity and designs that mirrors the inner beauty of a woman.

Born in Zimbabwe, she initially showed a flair for fashion and design when helping to create new outfits for her dolls helped by her mother, who was a great lover and supporter of the regional Arts and Craft movement at the time.

As a teenager, making her own clothes was a natural progression, and her design flair was confirmed when she raced ahead of other pupils at school when studying craftwork and Fashion and Fabrics.

Deconstructing clothes to establish patterns and understand the various cuts for garments, swiftly confirmed a passion for clothes and fashion, heavily influenced by the culture of the region, combined with the exciting prospect of new global fashion trends.

This drive and motivation led to her taking a number of supplementary roles, helping her to formalise her industry education, and leading to initially securing a professional National Certificate in Clothing Technology. This led to a place at the National School of Art & Design, where she graduated from a National Diploma In Fashion Design and authored her first formal “Portfolio”.

The recognition of this work by the school’s experts was such, it led to her winning one of the highly sort after “Fashion Design Seats” at the school, where she went onto secure an internship at the respected Edgars Group, the regional clothing market leader, who supply quality adult and children’s merchandise across Zimbabwe.

Fully leveraging the relationships built at Edgars, she was offered a permanent role with them, initially as a Fashion Designer, and gaining promotion to Product Coordinator on the back of the commercial success delivered for the brand and its sub-brands.

Niki Moyo’s proven and consistent excellence has led into her winning multi awards in 
her Fashion career.

Fantasia by KV

This summer, I was working on my third collection, Fantasia by KV. A lot of hard work and passion went into every part of it, and I'm glad I can share it with the FF readers!

Fantasia by KV is my first collection away from my afri-western signature mix. I explore the different ways to add exotic and artistic patterns to every day wear. There’s something for everyone.

It's the perfect style balance. Fantasia encompasses the Woman's idealistic sillouette: stylish, practical, comfortable and romantic. This collection boasts of trendy and flattering cuts; for every occasion; with comfort fit and a feminine and exotic touch on the fabric. Every touch, every stride in a Fantasia piece is magnificent, bold and adventurous.

You can view the full collection on the Keji Victoria website - kejivictoria.com.

Check out a few pieces below...
