KIKI Clothing is a Ghanaian clothing line created by creative director and fashion designer Titi Ademola.

Located in shop G39a in the Accra Mall, KIKI Clothing specializes in the making of Afrocentric designs with colourful Ghanaian fabrics with the main aim of promoting locally manufactured apparel that caters to the different lifestyles of people, not only in Africa, but all over the world.

Ademola looks to everyday life as her source of inspiration. Her Nigerian/Ghanaian lineage lends itself to dipping into their vast fashionable histories with respect to textiles, designs and, of course, representing Africa.

With her recent collection, showcased at African Fashion International, Ademola and her KIKI Clothing collection is a firm fixture in connecting and reconnecting her clients with their culture.

KIKI Clothing has received a lot of positive press over the years since making its indelible mark on the fashion scene. Due to its stylish quality, the clothing line has been lauded by both celebrities and fashionistas alike. One such celebrity, Nicole Ari Parker (popularly known for the hit TV shows Soul Food and Second Time Around) has expressed a lot of fondness and appreciation for the line by frequently walking the red carpet in designs from Ademola.

KIKI Clothing also believes in social responsibility and giving back to the community. It boasts a "Made in Ghana" mantra for all of the items and supports charities such as the Osu Children's Home (an orphanage in Accra). It has been involved in various charitable events, including the United Nations food project called Walk The World to combat hunger and provide food for starving children across the African continent.

Ademola and KIKI Clothing are really contributing their part in making a difference in the world. I believe in a good brand that supports a great cause. KIKI Clothing is one of such great brands.
