Designer Maya Owens
Welcome to my website.
As an independent fashion designer,
dressmaker, and artist.
I personally create, design & manufacture
Kiki Tiki collections.
I pride myself on attention to detail, and style. I'm always on the quest to learn more and push myself to be a better dressmaker.
I find every collection I make gets better with time like a fine wine.
My education is in art, photography, and
I draw my inspiration from Renaissance art, the female form, Mexican culture and
Island Tiki vintage lifestyle.
After 14 years of running my old label Razzama Dazzle a Rockabilly clothing brand, I decided to rebrand and specialize in the world of Tiki.
Being a Kiwi girl and loving all things vintage, tropical, and relaxed vibes.
The Tiki world seemed like the perfect fit for me.
Tiki culture is a subculture of
the classic rockabilly sean.
Beginning in California in the 1930s and then spreading around the world, Tiki culture was inspired by the sentimental appeal of an idealized South Pacific, particularly New Zealand, Hawaii, Polynesia, and Oceania, as viewed through the experiences of tourists and Hollywood movies, incorporating beautiful scenery and forbidden love.
I established Kiki Tiki on the Sunshine Coast 2020.
I simply love the total tropical oasis escapism.
After several years of showcasing my unique ranges at Eumundi Markets and festivals around Australia. In 2021 opened the first KIKI TIKI boutique in Yandina on the Sunshine Coast.
Now one year later Kiki Tiki is on the move, Yes our Yandina boutique is closing down.
This cute shop was in front of our house and since we have recently just sold our beautiful 1890s cottage we have to relocate our business.
We currently don't know where this will be.
So we are freezing all online sales for three months why we relocate.
Please join our mailing list to be the first to know when our online shopping is active again and most of all where we end up.
