The Bowtie Kids Clothing line was developed in 2013 by Miami Native Kiwani Tapper. She always had a passion for art and fashion since she was a child. As a teen, she attended Felix Varela High School and studied Graphic Arts. After graduating college with a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, Kiwani began a career as a Speech Therapist and worked with children living in Miami-Dade county some who had special needs. She never forgot her love for fashion and often thought of how she could be creative and still work with children.
I had a dream one night, a vision of my clothing line! I woke up and started drawing and developing an apparel line. This has never happened to me before, waking up from a dream and then drawing
The very next day, Kiwani had her preliminary sketches vectorized and printed on on a few t-shirts. She set-up a company website and with in 10 minutes sold her very 1st t-shirt. The clothing line has since gone through various phases of development over the past year. Featuring unique T-shirts with hand made 3 dimensional bows, accessories and onesies, all of the artwork is original and hand drawn by Kiwani. Even the brand logo is drawn by the owner. She recently added bow tie studded earring featuring the brand logo.
