After a brief stint in FinTech Sales, Jamila came up with the idea for Kahmune one night after realizing how hard it was to find quality, affordable products that matched her dark complexion. Kahmune is a luxury marketplace for skin tone footwear and accessories. All products are designed in ten skin tone hues in order to provide all women with a true nude option Having spent the majority of her childhood overseas in the Middle East, Jamila cites this international experience as the reason she is so passionate about diversity and inclusion. With no formal background in fashion design, she credits her desire to fill a much needed gap in the market and lifelong love of fashion as driving factors in her quest to create change in the industry.
