our story

Kaku is a mother and daughter initiative borne out of too many disappointing shopping trips. Both Karen and Sue love beautiful, comfortable, versatile, funky clothes that last for years, not merely a season. Despite having no experience in fashion, they embarked on an amazing journey to create a range of feminine, fun, gorgeous clothes for ALL ladies, irrespective of age, size and body shape. They enjoy nothing more than the magic moment when ladies trying on Kaku clothes look in the mirror and exclaim “Wow, look at me!”
Karen and Sue are truly invested in helping ladies to appreciate their own unique brand of beauty. They have yet to fail in their quest to find a new top, dress or outfit that puts a smile on a customer’s face. Kaku is not just a ladies clothing brand, it’s a brand created with love and appreciation for all women. For too long traditional fashion brands have failed to recognise that we are not all a size 8 with flat tummies and long legs. But why can’t we all still feel and look feminine and pretty?
Clothes are so much more than just the design, fabric and colour. They are a statement about who we are and what we want to project to the world. That’s why we adore colours that buzz and zing when you put them together. Electric blue with hot pink, sublime lime with dazzling coral. We dare you to wear our potent colour combos and not find yourself in a fabulous summer mood!
We love to help, listen, guide and share. If you’d like some advice or to make a suggestion, we’d love to hear from you.  Drop us an email on karen@kaku.co.za.
