About this project

Hello Kickstarter Fashionistas! NYC based fashion designer Minika Ko is utilizing the latest high tech fabric to design a collection for professional women around the world. If you want stylish, high quality, and low maintenance clothes, look no further. The KOVASKY collection is here. ALL THE STYLES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE IN BLACK.

THE FABRIC

Water Repellent

Our high-tech fabric is water-repellent, hydrophobic, and sufficient to prevent stains from accidental spills. When there's a spill, the water gets bounced off, or it will roll off from the surface.

Easy Care & Eco-Friendly

The garments are machine washable, fast drying and naturally wrinkle resistant. If you hang dry them, there will be minimal to no ironing required. The garments are designed to prevent stains from accidental spills. Though the fabric may stain after repeated spills, the stain can be easily removed after a machine wash. This collection will save you dry cleaning cost, and no dry cleaning means less chemical pollution.

We have also partnered with environmentally friendly manufacturers to make sure the collection is responsibly produced. The fabric is certified environment-friendly and produced with sustainable technology. So join us in kickstarting this project so that professional women everywhere can look great effortlessly and contribute to helping the environment.

THE DESIGN

  • Stylish, minimalist design for a sharp and sophisticated look
  • Slim-fit tailoring for a feminine yet powerful silhouette
  • Versatility for easy mix-and-match with your existing wardrobe

THE PRODUCTION

We are partnering with eco-friendly manufacturers, and we have informed them about this project. We aim to deliver the garments to the backers by the end of December 2017.

THE DESIGNER 

This collection is designed by Minika Ko, a fashion designer based in New York City. As an avid traveller, she has worked as a designer in France, Taipei, Los Angeles, and New York City. Minika brings her global experiences to the world of fashion, designing with adventurers in mind - the courageous, independent, professional women. Her philosophy lies in enhancing a woman’s confidence by highlighting her best features, such that she will always feel like herself in her outfit – the woman she desires to be.

Minika debuted her women’s ready-to-wear collection entitled KOVASKY on the runway at the New York Fashion Week in September 2016. The collection is made of cutting-edge performance fabrics, including winkle-resistant business attire and formal wear, weather-proof trench coats, and the water-repellent power suit and dresses featured in this Kickstarter campaign. She continued to develop the “high fashion meets high tech” concept and presented her latest addition to the KOVASKY line in her following show at New York Fashion Week in February 2017. The full house runway presentation represented a leap forward for Minika Ko, showcasing the growth of her brand while remaining true to the essence of her mission - to provide powerful clothing for powerful women.

Minika and her team have worked tirelessly on the design and product development of the Power Suits and Dresses for more than an year. Your help is needed to kickstart the production of this high performance collection!

Risks and challenges

There are potential risks of delay during the production and fulfillment process due to the fact that the production will take place during the busiest months when all the factories are producing for holiday shipments. In any case, we will keep our backers updated if there are any unexpected delays. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to us. We would love to hear from you.
