KLOVIA is the collaboration and vision of designer Sylvia Ktori of Private LiaisonTM Intimate Apparel and Kony Diaman, a renowned seamstress couturier.
The brand name is also an amalgamation of Sylvia and Kony’s names – representing the accord of their influence. “We have been working together on my Private Liaison lingerie brand, and were encouraged by one of the ladies from the Real housewives of Melbourne who characterised our working style as parallel to Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce & Gabbana) who made her wedding dress. She identified the creative dynamic between us and encouraged further collaboration, to power our skills and launch a couture brand.
With regular travel abroad, we recognised the demand for Australian Designers and the gap in Australian Haute Couture at an International level. It was a logical decision to establish this brand as our skills are ‘the perfect fit.’
We both have substantial experience working with the finest materials including French leavers Lace, Silks, beaded and intricate trims.
Our designs represent feminine modern style, combining levers lace appliquéd onto silk and feature embellishments throughout our range’. – Sylvia Ktori
