K.Milele is the brainchild of its creator, Kianga "Kiki" Milele.
Kiki’s career took flight in the 90s when launching the first multimillion dollar women’s urban brand; Fubu Ladies. Over the years, Kiki has also created ground-breaking collections and creative projects for Sean Combs, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Tommy Hilfiger and Rihanna.
In 2000, Kiki formed K.A.Kitties, a self funded juniors brand, along with her 3 business partners. K.A. Kitties shipped worldwide and lead the trends in the junior market.
K.MILELE RESORT BRAND
Yearning for the creative control and the fulfillment of owning her own brand, Kiki made the decision to get back to chasing her dreams, launching her first solo project K.Milele in 2012.
K.Milele is a celebration of all of Kiki’s gifts, passions and the embodiment of her expressions. Re-identifying with her younger self, pulling into the forefront the art that has driven her since childhood, Kiki embraces her given name, K.Milele [Kianga Milele], meaning “Sunbeam Everlasting”.
Originally born from necessity, the K.Milele Brand esthetic came from patching small cuts of available fabrics together and a sustainable no waste policy.
