About two years ago, while searching for high-end bikinis, Kambili Ngozi Ofili-Okonkwo realized there was a lack of stylish swimsuits that reflected the average woman’s true body size.
Despite her success as a Procurement Expeditor, Kambili Ngozi Ofili-Okonkwo resigned from the comforts of a 9-5 job to launch her own business, KAMOKINI, a Nigerian-based swimwear brand for all body types. KAMOKINI swimsuit designs are inspired by everything; art, music, African culture, Western fashion trends, and an understanding of a woman’s sensuality.
“The ‘aha’ moment for me was when I was making swimsuits for myself and my friends and was tracked down by a lady who wanted a swimsuit. She was so disappointed when I said I was not commercial, and was determined to show me that she was not alone in searching for my unique styles. She became my first employee and we have not looked back since then,” said Ofili-Okonkwo.
