TKoy & Victoria is a womenswear lifestyle brand founded in 2019 by Nigerian singer & songwriter, Missaei. The foundation of the brand is “laidback luxury” , a term Missaei coined to describe the versatile aesthetics and affordable price points. The ability to transition the pieces from day to night, from sightseeing to dinner whilst on vacation was a big part of the brand, and Missaei hopes to explore that concept even more as the brand evolves.
The name, Koy & Victoria was derived from two major islands, Ikoyi and Victoria Island, in the metropolitan city of Lagos, Nigeria’s economic capital, where Missaei grew up.
“Nigeria is home and I wanted it to play a major role in the evolution of my brand” - Missaei.
The bold colors and prints, which are at the heart of Koy & Victoria’s summer collections, are all designed by Missaei and are inspired by Adiré and Ankara (Nigerian ethnic textile designs) prints.
Missaei is a first generation Nigerian-America, born in Los Angeles, CA, and raised in Lagos Nigeria. She is an all round creative with a masters degree in film production from The University of Southern California, and singer/music producer with up to 1 million streams across various music streaming platforms. She is the sole creative director of the brand utilizing her film and photography background to shoot and edit all the content for the website and various social media platforms (aside from social media UGC).
