Designs by: Nakimuli

This line definitely appeals to me...funky, ethnic, chiq and original.  For now, I'm not sure how I feel about the prices. My final analysis will depend on the overall quality and originality of the brand. A review will be posted if and/or when I decide to purchase.  Check out some flicks below.

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.
