TeKay Designs has been designing African-American ethnic wedding gowns and formal wear since 1998. The Gold Collection features ethnic wedding dress and gown styles and Afrocentric bridal styles complete with matching headpieces including cultural accents and fabrics made of aso-ake, guinea brocade, george, silk dupioni, peau de soie, crepe satin, and jacquard decorated with hand stitched embroidery, trims, beads, kente, and/or Adinkra symbols. The African bridal and formal selection provide a memorable marriage ceremony at a reasonable price.

The company’s vision is to provide African and ethnic wedding gowns, bridal and formal wear for women and men to the U.S. and international market. Too often the image of Africa is one of civil war and famine that overshadows the positive image of extraordinary creativity and artistry passed down from generation to generation.

The Gold collection features prestigious, rare, and glamorous aso-ake wedding outfits for the bride and groom embroidered with the Adinkra symbol of the Sankofa. Hand woven aso-ake fabric (imported from West Africa) in gold or silver is used to make several outfits within the Gold collection. Aso-ake is hand woven in Nigeria, West Africa with shiny metallic lurex and brightly colored rayon threads.

The Gold Collection is appealing to the bride or groom who prefers a more fitted Western style with cultural appeal. The hand made fabrics, lace and beaded trim for the gown or dress come from West Africa, South America, and Asia to bring the flavor of diverse cultures and fashions.

Customers find the company's African and ethnic clothing truly beautiful. According to Theresa Williams (wedding coordinator), “The craftsmanship of the clothing was extraordinary. The material, its quality and rich appearance, culminated into a very beautiful array of rich, vibrant and stunning attires for the entire bridal party.”
