About Keith Kee
Through the respect and appreciation of individualism in every aspect, Keith Kee Couture (KKC) strongly believes that every piece of outfit is made for a lasting statement,
that will be worthy of a lifetime of memories. Keith prides on having an acute sensitivity to an individual’s needs and as such, pays meticulous attention to the detailing as well as finishing touches, in line with his genuine desire to bring out a person’s best.
Hailed from the Pearl of the Orient, Penang, Keith Kee Couture ( KKC ) was established in 2001. From its humble beginnings, KKC eventually expanded his business to the Klang Valley and eventually became a sought after name in the bridal and couture industry.
Being in the fashion industry, KKC has been an active participant in overseas fashion shows, beauty pageants as well as in fashion week.
KKC’s signature designs are the Modern Classic and clean cut designs. His love to use patch lace techniques and handmade embroidery enables him to create unique details in every dress that he designs to look fabulous and sophisticated.
Every year, KKC launches three main seasonal collections, namely, the Chinese new year collection, Cruise collection and the Autumn/Winter Collection.
In giving his clients confidence to wear his creation, KKC focuses on enhancing his client’s body curve as he believes that everyone is beautiful and unique.
Essentially, all KKC outfits possess high fashion cutting, regardless of whether it is an evening gown, cocktail dress, bridal gown, or even a cheongsam. Keith’s signature use of soft and flowy chiffon featuring multiple tones of colour is evident in most of his outfits. More recently, his signature style has expanded to include self drawn traditional batik motives on evening gowns as well as the modern classic cheongsams. His clever play with colours and patterns will not only help to reflect, but also enhance the wearer’s personality.
Outfits from the KKC men collection are usually designed from fabrics and materials with shiny surfaces as Keith prefers some luster instead of just regular matte. Aside from accentuating the slim fit cutting, emphasis is also given to style and comfort, besides channeling masculinity. He also enjoys experimenting with shiny buttons and accessories to further enhance the outfit. Any man in a KKC piece is bound to make the wearer look outstanding, and exceptionally stand out within any crowd.
