UKÃI (which means lady in umbundu language), is a fashion label created by the hard-working independent artist Katia de Almeida Aka Ukãi Ndame,which was called until this year (2022) “walkonme”.
Walkonme was originally organized as a fashion event for high heel infatuated ladies and gents*. Soon there were repeated requests for clothes to match the shoes - so we thought: why not offer this unique fashion ourselves?
UKÃI has made it its mission to create a very individual, unique style that is far away from fast fashion and always the same looking department store fashion.
We don't just want to produce fashion.
We want to give personality, uniqueness, diversity room to develop.
