Designer Spotlight: UK's own KiRette Couture


KiRette Couture (KC) is a new movement. And at its helm are Cameroonian duo Kibonen Nfi and Anrette Ngafor.

The business savvy image consultant and her ├╝ber trendy fashion graduate partner weave the originality of tradition and the vibrancy of contemporary styles to bring African sexy back to the wardrobe and catwalk.

Hatched in the New York chic bubble, KC’s signature style is inspired by the toghu - a colourful and intricately embroidered robe typically worn, on special occasions, by the people of Nfi and Ngafor’s native Western Highlands region.

This one-of-a kind label strides boldly across racial and cultural borders by exploring, experimenting with and fusing textiles from around the world.

We are an ethical brand and specialise in tailored, handcrafted and limited edition pieces. Our sourcing and manufacturing arrangements span across Africa and beyond.

Since our inception in January 2009, we continue to build a steady on and offline following of cool “KiRetters” who indulge in our luxurious yet affordable creations.

Let our exquisite designs drape you with class, style and confidence. Stand out from the crowd in KiRette Couture.
