The Nandi Collection is the brainchild of multi-talented artist Pamela Graham. Her style aesthetic is a soulful, earthy, and funky blend of color and fabric inspired by African and Caribbean cultures. A long time visual artist, Graham branched out into making bags, purses, leather earrings, and belts in 1997, expanding her collection to clothing in January of 2009.
Born in Milwaukee, WI, Graham enjoys making her artistic magic happen from the comfort of her home. Not only is she a mother and a student, Graham also works with autistic children, as well as teaching sewing and quilting to local high school youth. She learned how to sew in middle school and already a mixed media artist, she gradually built on her craft, adding elements of fashion and design, piece by piece.
What’s in a name? Everything! Nandi, a name of South African origin means a woman of high esteem. The Nandi Collection however, is fashioned for the highly esteemed individual, male or female, whether urbanely sophisticated, daringly eclectic, or down to the ground, Grahams personalized customization of wearable art is oriented to the customer/art aficionado.
