Nigerian-born Nkiru Nkechika. (Kiki-benjamin) is a fashion designer and business woman. Founder,Sashes couture. A fast growing fashion brand
A mother of 4, She Studied law at the University of Nigeria Enugu campus.
As a young lady growing up in the cool coal city of Enugu, sewing was second nature to me. No formal training by just watching my beautiful mom who was a lawyer come back from work attend to us and pull out her sewing machine in the evenings, something she enjoys doing .She made her own clothes and rocked them to weddings and church and got so much compliments. Aschola-Show as she was called then, She was and still is a Fashionista.
I started making clothes once she was at work and I was back from school, I will pull out the sewing machine. It was a passion and I so enjoyed doing it. I made clothes as a young girl in secondary school, with no formal training, I would use my mom’s machine, make my own dress, cut colourful leather fabrics and make sandals, create a matching hat and wear them to church and got lots of compliments!
I got married between my 2nd and 3rd year in the University and started having kids while still schooling. I was a very creative and very family oriented kind of person so I knew even while still in school that I was going to own my own business. I have always wanted to do my own thing, I made my own hats, fascinators, sandals, beads accessories, name it, back then as a teenager. I knew I had so much in me that the world needed to see.
