Who We Are
Nichole Kenner Harris
Founder & Creative Director
Hello there darling. I am Nichole Kenner Harris Founder and Creative Director of NAK Design Studio and it is story time.
Around 2011 I was unemployed, part time Army cook and full time student, with a roommate that depended on me to pay my share of the bills. To this day I know it was nothing but God that got me thru that period of my life. One night I literally stayed up after getting home from class to think of how I could create income or learn a skill that would help me to NEVER be in this position again.
During my “Unemployment season” I found myself styling special events. I started with my younger brother and sister asking for my opinion on what to wear to prom. I loved the feeling I got from picking out colors schemes, matching shoes with attire, and helping people feel 100% their best for a special event. It did helped me realize that styling people for special events fed into my creativity. Thru my styling I realized there was a problem in the footwear industry. I would always find shoes that I liked but there would be one thing wrong with them, either the color or fabric. This was the creation of my first business idea. But strictly shoes is not what God had for me.
Fast forward to 2017, I had come back from my second military deployment, bought a house, and had a cute boyfriend that was pretty smart so I kept him around. October of that year, that cute smart boyfriend asked me to be his wife. We were engaged and that was the beginning of NAK Design Studio. I knew I wanted something different for my wedding but I could not find it, so i created it. Now here we are creating and curating for all the other women out there that also want that "Something Different" for their wedding.
