About Kami Shade’
Kami Shade’ established herself as a fashion designer in July of 2004.
Born in the diverse and eclectic town of Berkeley, California in 1979, Kami Shade’s family have a strong music industry presence that includes several notable singers, including Al Green and her brother Scorp Dezel, responsible for a variety of Billboards top pop/hip hop induced hits for entertainers such as Nelly, Lil Wayne & The Dream. That being the case, it would seem only natural for her to follow in the footsteps of her family’s musical background.
However, always known for going against the grain, Kami Shade’ developed a passion for another industry: fashion.
Wanting to branch out and experience a world separate from California, Kami traveled to and lived in some of the most rural areas of South Carolina and Georgia. In 2000, Kami Shade’ embarked on a journey back to her California roots and decided to expand her passion of designing and making clothes.
When the notoriety and popularity of the collection reached its zenith in San Francisco, she still was not satisfied being a “local celebrity”.
Kami decided to embark on a new venture: to conquer the Los Angeles fashion industry. So she packed for LA, leaving her home in a well-to-do Berkeley suburb to move into a hotel in Los Angeles.
Not having a job, place to live or local friend/family member in sight, she had one thing: determination.
In only one month, Kami had already headlined her collection in various Hollywood venues and landed her feature editorial article in a LA fashion magazine spread.
Since then, she has also successfully produced some of the most notable fashion events in Los Angeles, and been seen in the fashion industry’s top magazines, including Vogue, Elle Magazine, Lucky Magazine, Apparel News and The Los Angeles Times, to name a few.
She had given various television interviews and guest-starred on NBC, Fox’s Hit TV Show House, MTV, BET and HBO’s Hit Show Entourage.
From making clothing for her Barbie dolls to dressing some of the most notable celebrities including Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Sharon Stone, The Pussy Cat Dolls, Danity Kane, Lauren Conrad & more: what a ride. Kami’s line consists of high-end couture, vintage-inspired swimwear and ready-to-wear collections for all women, tailored to compliment their body, style and personality as well as their budgets.
