My work is a visual representation of my urge to self reflect, research my identity and the way I portray myself to my surroundings. Influenced by social pressure and the recognition of my own dual being, it’s a search for who I am and what makes me Kiki.

Creating materials is a therapeutic tool for me. I believe you can feel the attention and emotion I put into the fabric. It’s my survival.

I exclusively use secondhand/repurposed materials. This suits my ethical values as a designer, keeps my footprint as small as possible and makes all pieces unique.

My work is for the outcast. Those who use clothing and makeup to express their inner personality, and by doing so becoming more and more their true form.
