Designer Spotlight: JINAKI

Jupe en pagne-africain-African print skirt by Jinaki via ciaafrique.com

According to their website Sharufa Rashied-Walker is the creator/designer behind JINAKI.She has always had an indelible love for fashion and the arts. Watching her mother create clothing planted the seed at a young age. Sharufa made her own alterations to her garments and began styling herself in grade school. Her creativity continued to flourish while attending the School of Arts and Science at Howard University, where she explored fashion design and began to hand sew pieces to her wardrobe. JINAKI was created while Sharufa was living in Nice, France. While there, she studied at the Singer Institute and began making original pieces. Her fabric choices stem from her exploits to Paris, Rome, and Belgium. Sharufa’s design aesthetic ranges from vintage inspired pieces to modern tailored pieces. I am absolutely in love with their styling. Peep some pieces from Jinaki below check them out here
