By this latest feat, Kiki Okewale has authored another chapter in her fascinating catalogue of firsts by blazing the trail as the first Nigerian to be so honoured and recognized in the far Eastern Country.
The International Thai Silk Fashion Week is organized at the behest of Queen Sirikit by the Thai Tourists Assistance Foundation, in collaboration with members of the foreign diplomatic corps in Bangkok, as part of the annual ‘Celebration of Silk’ project to showcase modern and traditional Thai silk and designs.
This year’s fashion exhibition involves 43 International fashion designers from over 60 countries showcasing their collections made from Thai Silk. Kiki is the only couturier from Nigeria participating at the special event.
The popular style icon and CEO of HOPE Fashion’s distinctive stock and creations have seen her shoot to the top of the fashion and clothing business in Nigeria within a short period of time as she boasts of several women of class and elegance as clients, from A-list celebrities and Nollywood icons, to top women politicians and business leaders.

An attribute that is also fast capturing the admiration of discerning women of style and class on the international stage, with her exquisite range of unique and bold designs and collections.
In April this year, Kiki became the first and only Nigerian, nay African designer to showcase at the Dubai Fashion Week.
