About KESHA FELIPA
Founded in 2015 as illustration studio by Dutch fashion designer Kesha Felipa. [pronunciation NL: Keesja, ENG: Case-ya] In 2017 the studio reinvented itself as an urban fashion label. Unlikely, the brand is not based in Amsterdam where Kesha studied Fashion & Design, but in the picturesque Breda, a middle size city in the South of The Netherlands.
The desire for a brand where loving and creating cool things, but still be humble, Kesha realized she has to create this herself. The brand is inspired by youth culture, music, pop culture with a touch treasuring the outsiders. Just as a DJ and MC would, KESHA FELIPA is mixing this orchestra of elements in an edgy, quirky and modern print based apparel. The fit of the line is hybrid / unisex. Intuitive approach makes the brand stand out. A lyric, a note or fragment of a videoclip can be the fire starter for a collection. The brand also loves clean graphic design and modern /urban architecture,
The brand believes in a slow approach to deliver quality, not offensive prints (still they are tongue-in-cheek proof) and let hypes be hypes. The collections are not seasonal swifters, but flow into each other. Produced in the Netherlands and Portugal.
Have a cool and positive day!
Meet the founder and creative designer of KESHA FELIPA
Hi there, I am Kesha Felipa (yes, it is really my name) and a designer graduated from ArtEZ Fashion Masters and Amfi (Amsterdam Fashion Institute). I was born and raised in The Netherlands, with a huge interest in pop culture and visual culture. I rather spend my childhood decoding how cartoons are made or why the Backstreet Boys wear Tommy Hilfiger then play outside. This curious view on the media gives me an very unique look at fashion. Sometimes misunderstood, but most times convincing. After working at retailers after my graduation I feel that I am too peculiar to work at large or conventional companies. And I am probably not as an unicorn as I think, wink wink. We live is a time of too much ado about nothing. Ain’t my style. With my good heart and stubborn personality I slowly made my steps in creative entrepreneurship. Slow but you better learn slowly and in silence that fire up into flames! The coming years I want to turn the namesake brand an cheeky apparel brand with cool prints, street inspired styles and urban authenticity.
