Kiki Kamanu, born to diplomatic parents, a Bostonian mother and Igbo father, is the face of her eponymous label which was birthed when she began revitalizing her twin sister’s clothes at age eleven. While with the Ford modeling agency in Boston, she had the honour of walking for several designers including Chanel, and Gucci.
Her latest collection“THE ABYSSINIAN ADVENTURE will be showing at GTB Lagos Fashion & Design Week, Eko HoteL from the 23rd – 26th October 2013.
Kiki Kamanu proudly brings you the culture of Ethiopia with her Spring/Summer 2014 ‘Abyssinian Adventure’. As she drove six to ten hours daily between villages throughout the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia, her travels led to her the discovery of Menen fabric. ‘Menen’ which means ‘the finest’, in Amharic, the centuries old language of Ethiopia, was originally founded in 2007 by a Spanish-Ethiopian couple, inspired by the traditional hand woven and embroidered clothing which Abyssinians have worn since ancient times.
