I've been wanting to feature Brooklyn based line naKIMuli for while now and really I was happy to receive their latest collection a few days ago. NaKIMuli is known to make beautiful and very funky designs with african prints. Lets learn a little a about the designer shall we ?
Owner + designer Tennille McMillan established Nakimuli Inc in 2009. Tennille's first love is modern dance, which may explain her love for jersey fabrics. Growing up in the hoods of Bushwick and East New York, Brooklyn, Tennille always stood out as "the weird one" with her unique style of dress. But she used that to her advantage and began teaching herself how to sew after graduating from high school at age 16. Tennille developed her skills by making clothes for family members and costumes for fellow dance students at Hunter College. After graduating with a BA in dance, Tennille decided to pursue designing clothing instead of dancing professionally. That is when Nakimuli began to take shape. Tennille still designs naKIMuli in her hometown of Brooklyn, NY.
