Introducing KVL ColLABs - making space for creativity
Collaborations are essential for growth. And so KVL Studios is excited to announce ‘ColLABs’ - our new creative collaboration space where we identify and work with passionate young creatives and leaders to promote, cross build brands and create art and events. In our ColLAB’s, we look to create a strong community of young people and businesses that will begin to take up space for creativity and art to drive change.
With this, we’re thrilled to introduce our first colLABorators - Ellen Morgan, who becomes our official brand ambassador and Arthur Vagi, who becomes our creative partner.
Ellen is a passionate young woman who is based out of Kokopo, East New Britain. Many know her for her role as Miss East New Britain, proudly representing her home province in the local pageants and in communities. But there is much more to Ellen that we resonate with - her work with local communities, shared fight against pollution and climate change, and all around positivity for young Papua New Guineans striving for change.
We also love that she is a Barata fan since we started, and so we are happy to introduce her as our official brand ambassador for KVL Barata and Claytn apparel.
Also becoming part of our colLAB is Arthur, a creative from Port Moresby who is currently finishing off his Tourism and Hospitality studies studies at the POM Business College.
We first came to know this energetic young man through training him as a runway model for PNG Fashion & Design Week. Since then, he has developed a sharp creative eye for photography and conceptual art that takes the viewer on a storytelling journey. His work is posted to his Instagram account, @pnggunzz.
We are pleased to welcome Arthur as our creative partner, who will be creating works for our Barata and Claytn brands, as well as upcoming projects.
The ColLAB is open to everyone and as we go along and develop further, we will partner with many more young businesses and creatives. We look forward to what the future of ColLABs will look like.
