KLOVIA is the product of a shared creative vision - a meeting of minds between designer, Sylvia Ktori, and seamstress couturier, Kony Diaman. Bringing the best of fashion, and an internationally benchmarked standard of couture, to Australian audiences, KLOVIA's luxury rental platform was born.
Both masters of craftsmanship and construction, Ktori and Diaman first collaborated on Ktori’s intimate apparel line, Private Liaison. The experience revealed a fruitful and synergetic working relationship, whose continuation was encouraged by both customers and industry insiders alike.
Following extensive travel abroad, the pair identified an unfulfilled demand for Australian designs available overseas, and an opportunity to create Australian Haute Couture at an international standard. Harnessing their collective skills and experience, Ktori and Diaman established KLOVIA in 2018. Echoing the brand’s collaborative genesis, KLOVIA is a blend of its founders’ names: Sylvia and Kony.
KLOVIA is synonymous with contemporary yet feminine design. Its intricately crafted couture pieces are ethically handmade in the brand’s Melbourne-based atelier, and feature luxury materials such as French leavers lace, beaded accents and embellishments appliquéd onto the highest quality silk fabrications.
