finally putting up the pics from the harvard university show. yay!

i was among a handful of designers to have their clothing in the show, which was an honor cuz, after all, it IS harvard. our bus was an hour late so we didn’t get a chance to really see the campus. but it was still wonderful to say, “yes, i’ve been to harvard.” lol

beautiful architecture.

setting up the runway.

gift bags.

people coming in. that line was mad crazy!

me (looking like an old lady) x my iphone.

shirlette aka my new intern aka the camera whore. *with love.* hehe

brown mosaic drape pants

theresa dress

true essence skirt

afrikan hologram skirt

afrikan hologram dress 

*side note: i like how they did not put all the black models in all the african stuff. :)

primal cut throat cape coming soon

anna sui!

ms. sui was the honorary guest.

me x stephanie.

we saw her at the entrance of the campus looking lost, just like me + shirlette was. lol come to find out stephanie is a loyal fan of our blog who came out to see us! so appreciative of the love. 

me x kaidi, my #1 boston customer. 

the black girl crew.

the highlight of the night—-meeting anna sui! she was such a sweetheart.

and they sent me a lovely thank you card.

:)

my brain hurts.
just came back to bk from vermont on sunday nite + monday morning i had to go to photography class. only 2 classes to go + then an exhibition of our work. so excited, though think i just figured out the theme for my pics…had so many dope ideas but the exhibit is next week so i am gonna have to simplify my ideas. :(
still finishing up the nakimuli spring line + trying to manage our growth = my monthly anxiety attack today. argh!!! i like the direction it is going though i am very anxious to see the reaction to it. can’t wait to reveal it this month.
will be posting pics of the vermont fashion show + the harlem fashion show on thursday. and trying to find some rest in between it all.

i just took mad stuff of both of our online stores on etsy.

trying to really buckle down + get this spring collection out to you as soon as possible!

but as you can see, we are really working hard. kelly learned how to make patterns + some light sewing.

and amina has been pulling her weight with hand sewing some new accessories (including new bow brooches for the spring!) + cutting patterns. and as u can see, r running out of room! lol but things r getting done; we r caught up (finally!!!) on orders + are focused on spring + summer. so excited.

oh, i am currently on my way to vermont to do a fashion show at the university of vermont on friday. so we may be quiet here until next week. but i still will be able to answer emails + stuff so if u need to email a playa (not really lol) hit me up:

tennille@nakimuli.com

until next week…later boo!

after being away for 2 weeks, i came home to an empty fridge. so i had to stock up at trader joe’s. not much food but then again, if i buy too much, it always seems to spoil before i can get to it.

after 2 weeks in birmingham, alabama, 2 days in charlotte, 2 delayed flights, and the worst turbulence EVER, i am finally back home. :)

updates coming shortly.

and i have decided that i need to live close to trader joe’s and whole foods when i move to LA…

***thank u ominy for the info. when i take a trip out to LA, i will let u know.***

since i have decided to move to LA, the universe has been giving me little signs that this is a go:

  • now my godfather is moving out there, which is sooo dope. he has lived there before and all he talks about is moving back. so i think my decision has propelled him to speed up his move. he will be moving b4 me, which is such a stress reliever for me. :D
  • i was researching online for bamboo spandex fabric to use for my dance clothing line. i found this store and guess where they are located? in LA!!! but of course!
  • and what are the odds of this happening? the guy that i am currently seeing is also thinking about moving (back) to LA. oh snap! (good looking out on this one, universe!)

and it is so funny cuz it seems like everyone is moving out of nyc. or at least thinking of it. i went to my friend’s going away party yesterday. she is moving to canada for her job (she is an actress on fox’s fringe show) + she might move to LA after they finish taping the season. yay! and i ran into an associate at the fabric store. i mentioned that i may be moving to LA + she said that she was thinking of moving out of nyc too. then late last nite, another person i know said she is moving to atlanta at the end of the month!

so this is to u, new york city:

nyc, especially brooklyn is such a dope place but damn it, it is getting really expensive to live here! and it is too dirty + the apts are too small! but don’t worry, my goal is to be bicoastal. plus you will always be my heart and the place i call HOME. (where brooklyn at!)

so my friend yaani, came back to nyc to visit. we had dinner last nite + had a BLAST!!! yaani now lives in l.a. and she was convincing me to move out there. moving out of nyc has been on my mind for a while, and cali makes sense cuz of their fashion district + i already know a few ppl out there. and cuz there are so many people who i cyber stalk who are from cali. lol and i went to cali in 2003 + LOVED it. soooo….

i’m gonna plan a trip out there. i am sooo excited. got any suggestions on what i should look into? let me know.
