Kambili: My name is Kam-bili Ofili and the brand is about bi-kinis & mono-kinis. It's also a play on "pi-kin" as I'm the child of my parents.
Kambili: Everything I love art, Africa, music, engineering. The current collection is a tribute to the beauty of traditional African women dressing & hair styles.
That I get to add real value to a woman by creating pieces that genuinely make her more confident. I do this with swimwear that is conscious of her vulnerability whilst "exposed publicly" to resort wear that is conscious of her need to look elegant. Even if she may fluctuate in size, as she goes about enjoying her life (hence the name "Freedom" for the Resort wear- it's based on a one size fits all concept with no zips but elastics and wraps).
Kambili: I am Lagos, Nigerian, African. I am "their" inspiration. I'll give you examples. Our KUBA dress is an innovative spin on the Nigerian iro & buba combined in one. Our KOGA dress is an invention based off the Guinean, Egyptian & Ethiopian women's wrapper tying coupled with the Grecian togas.
Kambili: Any woman who wants to be.
Kambili: There are many but I'll name one. The depreciation of the naira is destabilizing our selling price (RSP). Our solution is to locally source and we are making plans to fulfill our supply chain in its entirety locally as soon as possible.
Kambili: We hope to re - inspire the KAMOKINI woman with our first ever Resort wear collection selling at X retail.
Kambili: It certainly was! KAMOKINI is a brand of the people. Things are tough enough as they are. A woman should have the "freedom" to look as good as she deserves without having to break the bank.
Kambili: Ask me again in a year. We are not done finding out!
Kambili: Being an export commodity.
