biography

Dauvia Nijenhuis is a fashion designer based in the Netherlands. Born in Angola, the designer moved to the Netherlands when she was ten years old. Though she began designing at an early age, she did not launch her eponymous brand, Dauvia, until 2016. That same year, the brand was selected by Vlisco, a Dutch design and manufacturing company that produces African wax prints, to produce a collection made from their new fabric. Contrasting traditionally African prints and fabrics with modern, feminine silhouettes, the designer creates pieces that are a bold nod to her heritage while maintaining a distinctly European influence.
