A few weeks back, Christina from Musings of a Fatshionista fancied her curves in one. @ThefatandSkinny shared info about it on Twitter yesterday. This new label out of Brooklyn is sure to catch a few eyes as America’s Funky Sweetheart, especially as she fashions her line in plus as well!
Pronounced nah-KIM-u-lee, the name naKIMuli is from Uganda, meaning flower. Not for the late bloomer, naKIMuli pushes the envelope in Tribal chic fashions for the fun, forward, and fierce fashionistas!
naKIMuli is definitely a label for young forward-thinking fashionistas. Designed by Tennille Nakimuli Shanae McMillan, naKIMuli is an exclusively limited quantity-produced ready-to-wear clothing line for young women. From her use of jersey fabrics to her unique silhouettes and use of colors and patterns, Tennille McMillan’s creations clearly reflect the spirit of her native Brooklyn —youthful, fresh, and funky. naKIMuli—America’s Funky Sweetheart
The label’s spring collection is titled: Lock U Up In Luv For Days
The look of love. The colors of spring. The energy of Brooklyn. With this collection, I wanted to capture the feeling of a spring fling; of meeting that special someone in Fort Greene Park and spending the spring days and evenings with him. Getting to know him. Enjoying the weather. And wearing outfits that would make you feel young and fun and flirty.
