My blog pimpin’ that is. Since my uncle and nephew died, I kind of been slacking on the original content of the blog, like the Diary of a Designer entries. But I will be starting it back up again soon along with Studio Visit entries and some other stuff.

But make sure to check us out on instragram under nakimuliinc, and our FB page, Nakimuli, America’s Funky Sweetheart, because we update there more often. 

After getting much needed rest this weekend (I can still use one more day), I am interviewing for interns and seamstresses this morning. Excited but still exhausted. 

Missing my hair.

And oh yea, bringing back the Black Wordsworth Bow Brooch.

Only 2 have been made.

Yesterday my best friend of 27 years (yes, we go waaaaay back) texted these pics of her with the Time Out Mag I sent her in the mail. She seems more excited that I did! I think it’s cuz she thinks that once I hit it big time, she will quit her job and become my assistant. But I’ve already fired her. Ha!

And one more pic from the mag. In my haste to turn to page 23, I didn’t even know I was on the Table of Contents page until 3 days later. I’m a mess! 

P.S.- I just checked the rest of the mag to make sure I didn’t miss anthing else!

This weekend I received a printed copy of my Time Out NY Magazine feature in the mail. I was so surprised that I got the whole page to myself!!! Usually they create a collage of all the people they feature and make it a 2 page spread. But they only featured me, which was odd but wow! I’m loving it! Forever excited and grateful.

Now I have to run and buy like 5 copies and send them to my family and frame this one!

Found this while searching “Nakimuli” tags on tumblr. We are international! Dope.

I have been in my new apartment for 2 weeks and this is all I have in the fridge—-hash browns, Red Stripe beer, blueberries, grape juice, rice milk, orange juice. And there is absolutely nothing in the freezer. Smh. 
Thank goodness mom dukes lives across the hall!

So happy this posted during Fashion Week. Back in October 2011, we shot this photo shoot naming me as one of Time Out NY’s Most Stylish New Yorkers. I always wanted to be named and when I got the email from them, I was shocked. A dream come true!

Here are a couple of pics from the shoot. Of course I am rocking Nakimuli in every look. You can see more here:

back in april i had the pleasure of being picked as fashion 500 honoree celebrating black fashion month here in brooklyn.

it sucks that i didn’t get a chance to go to the event; i went to harvard the day before and i caught a cold. :(

here is the preview they put together of all the honorees. you can see me around the 1:06 and 2:18 mark.

side note: love how they are playing one of my fav songs from one of fav movies in the background; branford marsalis’ mo’ better blues. :)
