During New York Fashion Week in September 2016, Minika debuted her women’s ready-to-wear collection entitled KOVASKY.

After the Samurai Armor Minika went on to design a wearable technology garment known as the ‘CloudDress’ and along with other cutting edge designers, the dress featured at New York University’s Integrated Digital Media Showcase.
Where possible Minika ensures all her creations are pass through zero-waste techniques which is in line with her principles on helping to reduce the negative impact fashion waste has had on our environment for so long.
