Tell us a little about Wekoko
WEKOKO.com is a one stop shop for everything sparkly, beautiful and full of Unicorn vibes! We represent and sell 53 of the most unique fashion designers and brands based in the UK, Europe & LA. WEKOKO is very much festival and summer inspiring!
Favourite piece for a festival?
I'm obsessed with these stunning mirror dresses and tops by one of our designers Claudia Pink which are PERFECT for festivals. I wore one for the first time at Burning Man last year and it was hands down my favourite outfit of the week. I have one on last night for our launch party.
Whats Wekoko’s summer plans?
WEKOKO's summer plans are to bring sparkle and colour to lots of festivals and parties! First stop is Coachella, then we come back and will be heading to We Are FSTVL in May. We want people to have fun with what they wear and feel confident to stand out in a crowd. We want to encourage people to express themselves through fashion.
We love you IG feed, what inspires you?
Thank you :) I am inspired by creativity. Instagram is a great way to showcase everything that you love so for me it is travel, fashion and positivity.
Fun fact about Wekoko?
WEKOKO is that it all came from a Saturday night brain storming session on the bedroom floor scribbling on a massive piece of pink card whilst drinking rose with my partner Lloyd Nwagboso. Turning that dream into reality in just 12 months has been super fun!
Brand highlight so far
A highlight for WEKOKO so far is that the lead singer of Rudimental wore one of our designers outfits for their O2 Arena Show last month. We ran down to the arena during the daytime with a massive suitcase full of WEKOKO outfits so we didn't know if she would choose anything to wear from us so when she rocked out on stage shining in one of our designers that was SUCH A BUZZ!!
