Brooklyn born native and self taught designer Shakira Lewis has created a name for herself with a wide array of women’s apparel that embodies vividness in color and boldness in pattern.
Beginning in 2008, her eye for fashion was introduced to the world with her combination of men’s accessories and women’s garments. From bowties for men to jewelry for women, Shakira took on an entirely new endeavor when deciding to focus solely on women’s apparel.
Gaining inspiration from fellow designers, art, music and photography, Shakira created Kira Nacole, a line of unique apparel that enables women to make visual statements to all those around them. From bold colors, fringe and eye catching patterns, the design elements that go into creating these beautiful pieces are what separate them from the rest.
Initially exhibiting her work at the 2010 Elude Fashion Show in NYC, the evolution of Kira Nacole (formerly known as Joie de Vivre by Kira L.) is vastly growing.
Currently the sole designer, pattern maker and seamstress for the clothing line, Shakira’s work ethic and fuel for success are what enable her to continue creating remarkable pieces for women and girls all around the world.
