“I wanted a medium where I could connect my love for colour,
voluminous shapes and my experiences of growing up in Southern
Nigeria with the hope that someone else would relate to this”.
Our story so far
If we could do one thing by sharing our story, it would be to inspire you
to feel your best self.
At Kim Dave, we relate to the discouragement, or lack of self-belief you
may face as you anchor towards the purpose of your life. Our founder,
Priscillia Okpan, born and bred in Nigeria, studied to become a
microbiologist in her early career journey. However, after making a
spontaneous and rather brave decision to move to London on her own to
study fashion, she spent her time outside of her fashion studies to work in
retail. Whilst adjusting to a new world and taking a new career direction,
she used her savings from her fashion retail career to fund Kim Dave
ready to wear. The luxury fashion brand was born in 2019, with the
founder and designer going live with the first collection “Festival” in
“It’s okay not to have it all figured out, sometimes it takes a leap of faith
in your wildest dreams, to make them a reality”.
Priscillia wants to encourage others to feel embraced, beautiful, and
confident through the multi-dimensional fashionwear that she produces.
Wearing the Kim Dave luxury label means wearing the tales and
meaningful stories behind the rich culture of Southern Nigeria. For very
long, this part of Nigeria has been known for civil unrest and poverty,
however we extract the core of the Nigerian culture that the world fails to
see - stories from the depths of the Urhobo tribe, imprinted against every
Empowering all genders, sizes, and backgrounds to feel like a
work-of-art and become a part of our story, in their everyday lives.
We offer sustainable luxury which makes all genders feel chic,
sophisticated, and glamorous.
