NIKI P London: Reasons to Smile

£17,773

103

NIKI P London is a luxury womenswear brand, creating wearable art to enchant and inspire.

"Niki’s designs are magical, she brings nature to life. If you listen carefully you can hear the birds sing and smell the flowers!” Julia Johnson, Pickwick Papers

“I’m a sucker for activewear which combine both style and substance - and my NIKI P leggings do exactly that.” Lucy, The Fashion Fitness Foodie

"Niki...who is a talented artist spreads happiness through her creativity (her work is honestly insane)...her snazzy leggings are seriously amazing quality!" Simone, Eltoria

I have created a luxury ready-to-wear brand by designing wearable art to enchant & inspire. My mission is to inject colour and happiness into the world with beautifully unique products and hand crafted designs.

I begin on paper by hand illustrating sketches. I love spending time on getting each print to tell a story which excites you. Inspired by travel and the natural beauty around us, I take details we sometimes miss and celebrate them in my designs as something you get to love and enjoy everyday. 

Working alongside top craftsman, I have developed my first collection Reasons to Smile. I have transferred everything I have learnt from my customers love of my silk scarf collections to develop beautiful clothes to invest in, that you feel both comfortable and confident wearing.

The collection is now ready, and I need your help to launch its production.

I have designed the pieces for 'Reasons To Smile' with three main principles in mind:

With a passion for well-being, my vision is to create a luxury feel good-brand by designing wearable art that never goes out of fashion. They are beautiful clothes to invest in, that have a great impact whenever worn and are designed to make you feel special, comfortable and confident.

With the modern woman in mind, I have carefully designed these pieces to be versatile, enabling you to dress them up or down. So if you are rushing from one place to the next, just grab your kimono and you are good to go! 

 Custard Apple Tree kimono modelled by the gorgeous Lorena.

I will always be at the heart of every piece by personally hand sketching each design. This is to ensure it is both captivating but also epitomises the ethos behind my luxury feel-good label. The first range to be launched is made up of my botanical and wildlife prints carefully designed to be timeless, appealing to a variety of tastes. 

Flamingo dress modelled by the gorgeous Lorena.

Because elegance comes with simplicity, I design these pieces to enhance womans bodies with minimal cuts for long busy days. The ready-to-wear collection can be dressed up with heels or down with jeans, but either way you will always feel special.

Water Buffalo hand illustrated kimono

Merging the line between art, fashion and fitness, my wearable art fitness leggings can be worn for running, yoga, exercise classes or simply styled as everyday clothing designed to make you feel confident. The leggings are manufactured from highly durable, breathable and elastane fabric, which support the body in movement whilst looking and feeling incredible against the skin. 

Modelled by the lovely Simone at Eltoria Secrets. 

 

I have thought of some exciting and exclusive rewards for you which you can check out below. With your help we can bring the collection to life!

Behind the £17,500 - This is the absolute bare minimum needed to make the collection reality. 

I know some of you might think this seems a lot but it all adds up. Here's a breakdown of where the funding will be going.

Apparently (call me crazy) I've decided to pick a career in one of the most competitive industries out there (yes I am crazy). But, those who know me, also know how utterly determined and driven I am. I have an unbelievable amount of passion for what I do. That passion to create something beautiful that makes you feel special. It gives me so much pleasure to know I can make a difference to someones life through my art. And that is what keeps me going everyday.

But how do I get noticed in this competitive industry? I put myself out there and start a crowd-funding campaign that has kept working 20 hour days for I can't remember how long (yep that's it, I am officially crazy!) So here I am...

Firstly, I would like to showcase at Pure trade show in February to help attract retailers with my ready-to-wear collection 'Reasons to Smile.' I want to have a stand full of beautiful, wearable art clothes that scream look at me, NIKI P London is here!!!

But to do this, the stand alone costs £5,500 (Yep, thats correct! £5,500!) And that's not even including the materials for the stand. How can a small designer like me afford that? (Well, hopefully with your help!)

That's where a big lump sum of the funding is going & here's where the rest would be heading.

Check out the leggings! Not boasting, but I mean seriously, how cool are they!?

I'm so excited to start the next chapter and thank you for being part of NIKI P London and your 'Reasons to Smile.' 

Risks and challenges

I truly hope to raise the objective and to deliver all the rewards in time. Over the course of my career & business, I have developed great relationships with quality craftsman who can deliver in terms of production.

However, it is important to consider all the risks, and in case my current dressmaker cannot achieve production in time, for any reason, I have a second dressmaker on standby.

In regards to silk printing, I have several specialists on board, who always produce at a high end level, and whom I have absolute trust in, but again, I have a second workshop on standby. This is the same for creating my luxury sportswear pieces too.
