KORLEKIE is a unique luxury womenswear brand combining hand weaved fabrics & heritage techniques with sensual elegance.

Headed by the brand’s creative director Beatrice Korlekie Newman, the collections are strongly influenced by traditional craft from the designer’s Afro-British upbringing.

Korlekie was established in 2013 after the designer, finished her MA in Digital Fashion at London College of Fashion. The brand's success was almost immediate when celebrities such as Alesha Dixon, Anna Friel and Rita Ora to name a few ordered their own bespoke pieces for glamorous events. Korlekie has also been featured in the likes of Vogue and iD amongst many other magazines in Europe and internationally.

Korlekie designs centre on the unique craftsmanship of British heritage crafts such as knitwear and specialist hand techniques fused with modern digital technology to create truly stunning, sustainable pieces of clothing for the discerning, unique and highly sensual woman. All pieces and materials are crafted in the brand's own London studio and materials sourced from the UK for a truly 'made in UK' label.
