IKKIVI Ethical Fashion Haul With Founder Dominique Drakeford

Screen Shot 2019-07-24 at 1.16.06 PM.png

This e-commerce shop this is the first one we’ve seen that is intentionally created to highlight modern fashion-forward brands that are based in India with a platform that is creatively curated by all people of color. With 30+ slow fashion designers, IKKIVI is breaking the aesthetic stigma of Indian fashion and helping to build localized circularity.

Today we wanted to visually show that contemporary Indian fashion can compete in the luxury marketplace and needs to be valued as an elite sustainable style option!

MelaninASS founder, Dominique Drakeford, pulled pieces from a hand-full of designers to put together a couple of fun looks!
