Kimma Wreh the brain behind the clothing line TeKay Designs has been designing ethnic formal wear and bridal gowns for over fifteen years. Kimma has been approached by more and more brides who want to return to their roots to feel connected to their heritage. In 1996, she began her business in producing authentic ethnic fashions for brides in the western world.
Kimma doesn’t only design gowns, she create a complete set of ladies dresses and formal menswear tailored for the bridal party.
According to Kimma “ in the world of ethnic fashions, brides are investing into something more than a dress. The ethnic fashions display their identity, so this becomes a theme for the entire wedding. Ethnic fabrics and symbols are often used to accessorize theme weddings and leave a lasting impression. Ethnic accessories such as bouquets, headpieces or sashes are used to compliment the bridesmaids and flower girl’s attire. The groom’s outfit is usually color coordinated with the bride’s wedding gown. A common ethnic trend worn by groomsmen is the sleeveless agbada suit sometimes worn with a kente shoulder-wrap, hat, handkerchief or tie. Ethnic couples are investing into something that represents their family history; and must transcend down through future generations. Cultural pride is a value that you can’t put a price on.”
