thank u ladies for the pics!
tiffany calls herself my stan. lol but i have to say she IS one of my best customers. and here she is rocking her custom leopard print closed wing cardigan.
(loving how you paired it with the purple bodysuit, tiff! especially since purple is my fav color.)
and make sure to visit her blog: www.fatshopaholic.com
one of my customers, deaundra, asked me to make some custom dookie bracelets for her daughter, layla.
and layla is cute as a button, rocking her dookie bracelets. (i can tell by her bright colors that she is a future naKIMuli gal.)
love the way they turned out. and yes, naKIMuli for children is in the works. :)
one of my close friends yaani, who is also amina’s big sis and best friends with meoldy ehsani, asked me to do a custom dookie chain dress for her to wear on her birthday, which was yesterday.
yaani always wears white on her birthday so we decided to do a white dress with a gold chain, which i hear was melody’s suggestion. and it came out great! looking good yaani!
i had to express mail the dress to cali in time for her celebration on sunday. melody + the rest of her friends threw her a surprise birthday party.
aaaawwww!!!! happy birthday yaani!!!
p.s.—-shout out to amina for sewing the gold links!!! ;)
and yaani is a dope actress. she just wrapped up on the series saving grace + will be a part of a webseries that idris elba is producing. niiiice! of course i will keep you posted when i get details on her new projects. so proud of her. she has come a long way since high school! so wonderful to see your friends blossom!
finally got a pic of cat (left in green) in the dress i made for her for the tony’s. she looks amazing!
here at pics of it we took the day before at her hotel room:
(took it with her iphone but once she texted it to my phone, the quality looked all crappy.)
it is a tie back, showing a little skin. :) i actually made the skirt a little fuller too.
will be debuting this style for the summer. just waiting for cat to name it. lol
and congrats to the fela cast for winning best choreography, best costume design, and best sound design! (they should have won best musical though. and yes i am bias.)
i do a lot of custom work. it really is the thing that got me going in business. so i will be posting new custom items i work on.
so my boys mikel + hassan asked me to designsome leggings for hassan’s back-up dancers. hassan is a rapper, and a great one i might add, so i said yes. i was going to do the red + black 2 tone leggings…
but i did not have enough fabric. but i had just enough of this black + white print fabric…
dafina, hassan lovely girlfriend. she is so sweet!
emily, the other dancer. didn’t get to meet her though. :(
they actually go better with their red sneakers + accessories than the red + black ones. love how the tights came out, even though you can’t go wrong with two tone leggings.
get your own two tone leggings here!
since halloween 2007, i wanted to be a bumblebee. but this year was the 1st time i dressed up since…i couldn’t even tell u! since grade school! made the asymmetrical top, complete w/ a shoulder pad, the black panties, the antennae, tutu + wings, which fell apart by the end of the nite. lol. but i had sooo much fun! pics of the party coming soon.
101 dress in black
will be shipping this out to my customer, erica, today
it is the solid color of the original 101 dress:
u can wear as a dress, skirt, or top.
and though it is currently sold under naKIMuli, it will be making its transition to our other clothing label, shanae.
available now: naKIMuli online store
this is a custom order i just finished for a customer. she provided me with the skirt fabric and the ruffle fabric. it came out pretty nice. cute summer dress. and shout out to kalen. she has fast become one of my fav customers. since april, she has purchased 6+ dresses. i think that is a record for me. makes me all warm + fuzzy inside. lol
after i finished it, i placed a piece of tulle underneath the skirt to see how it looked. i should have taken a pic of it. but i think that will be the new addition to this dress, a detachable tulle skirt…stay tuned!
