Designer Mawi Keivom
Like most New Zealanders she left Auckland and ended up in London, drawn to the city’s creative vibe where she met her business partner and future husband Tim. Tim being the son of antique store has a real eye for vintage and antique and soon the pair had come up with a big collection of unique pieces and the Mawi brand was born. Mawi made its debut at London Fashion Week in 2003 with a collection of jewellery and handbags and become an instant hit.
The British Fashion Council awarded Mawi with the New Generation Award for three consecutive seasons and the brand took off like a house on fire with celebrities spotting her over over the top clutches and collaboration with brands like Hugo Boss, Temperley London, Swarovski, ASOS and Topshop. Now in their 10th year of operation, we are surprise with their signature over the top bling attention grabbing designs so coveted by Hong Kong celebs and tai-tais, that it only made its way to Lane Crawford stores in Hong Kong in 2011. Oh well, better late then never ..we expect to spot lots of Mawi clutches this festive season as the brand looks set to take off in Hong Kong!
