About Me

About Me

Hi folks, welcome to my beautiful world.
A world of happiness, peace, hope and fulfillment
I am Kikiopefoluwa Oyegoke Wale-Okewale. Kiki Okewale for short.
I am a black and proud Nigerian woman:
A daughter; sister, wife and mother
An entrepreneur; a fashion design and style expert;
A motivational speaker, and philanthropist

I was lucky to have had some good education in Nigeria and abroad, with a
few qualifications to show for it. And my work experience has largely been in
the marketing communication industry where I garnered significant
proficiencies in marketing, branding, public relations, as well as event
management; and directly contributed to the affairs of some leading brands
such as Omo, Lux, Etisalat Nigeria, MTN Nigeria, amongst others.

However, my all-consuming passion has always been Fashion.
So at present, that is what defines me as I run two fashion outfits:
HOPE Fashion where we stock exclusive fabrics and fashion accessories, and St. Kiks Couture where we provide clothing and styling services to discerning individuals with class and sophistication.

Without being immodest, I consider myself a success.
No… not because I have all the wealth in this world; far from it
And not because I have it all together and don’t have challenges;
On the contrary, I am a success because I have joy and fulfillment in my life.
And when there is Joy in your heart, you will have HOPE in your mind.
And with hope, you conquer doubts and overcome challenges

And that makes me an-always- very-happy- soul.

And it is around this realization that I have chosen my purpose in life:
“To spread as much happiness and restore hope to as many people as I
can reach in the world”

But you can see more about my commitments to achieving these goals from
the pages: My Foundation as well as My Blog: Keeping HOPE Alive

I hope that as you get to know more about me, you will find some Stitches of HOPE and strands of Happiness to inspire you to your own abundant place of Joy and fulfillment in life.

I am happy to have you here in my beautiful world.
Thank you and bless you.

Stiches of Hope

My Foundation

My Foundation

Stitches of HOPE is a foundation aimed at Restoring Hope to the society and Sharing Happiness to as many people in the world, so that they can look beyond their present troubles and look forward to a better tomorrow.

I believe Happiness is the essence of life and when we find it, we find everything. But one thing that is stealing from people’s happiness is the absence of HOPE. Due to some whims of fate and unfortunate circumstances, the lack of trust in the promise of tomorrow is robbing them of the simplest joy of even smiling.

And it is around this realization that I have chosen my purpose in life:

“To spread as much happiness and restore hope to as many people as I can reach in the world”

“A stitch in time, it is said saves nine”.

A stitch here is a timely intervention. And to stitch is to mend, correct, or repair. Basically Stitches of HOPE hopes to provide timely and positive interventions that will mend the challenges people face and help them get a better footing towards realizing their dreams.

Stitches of HOPE Foundation is therefore focused on helping people have or retain HOPE, in order to find and retain happiness down the road, because “When there is hope, there is everything”.

The Foundation will provide help in 3 major areas:

  1. Support for those seeking careers in fashion designing through strategic scholarship and/or empowerment.
  2. Support for children in homes and hospices through provisions of skills development facilities with the aim of helping them acquire useful economic capabilities.
  3. Support for women advocacy programs and issues e.g. widows, prostitutes rehabilitation, gender discrimination and domestic abuse.

Further details on modus operandi and updates on impending activities of the Foundation will be provided subsequently on this site.

Thank you and bless you.
