About me
thenakedrootscollection@gmail.com



Eunika Simmons was born in 1982 and raised in the Artistic Kingdom
of Brooklyn, New York. Brooklyn being so full of diversity from the
styles worn to the race and cultures found here has had a huge impact
on shaping this designer. Brooklyn is streaming with flavor and rich
with musicians, painters, designers, dancers, etc from all over the
world. This diversity is draped in her collection as she explores
various styles and dances with different patterns and colors found in

nature across the globe. She always had a love for fashion but never

dreamed that she would one day be designing. She infuses her African

Roots with contemporary fashion which led to the creation of her clothing line “The Naked

Roots Collection”.
In 2007, she purchased a sewing machine and began teaching herself

how to sew. As a little girl, she was always found sketching images.
She later found out sketching and drawing were one of the gifts

inherited from her father. She used this ability to create her own

line and within about a year, produced these garments without any

assistance. “I just used common sense to help me navigate while
sewing” … Eunika Simmons. Her creativeness can be attributed to her
mother who created magical costumes each year for Halloween also
without any previous sewing or training experience.

Since her debut in Soho, NYC, her line has been featured all over
the tri-state area. Universities like NYU and Stony Brook have
requested her appearance. She's conquering the world of fashion

world through Television media with shows like "All Eyes on Fashion

T.V" and Brooklyn Wave fashion week event captured on New channel 12. Her work has also been featured on blogs such as theStylePenthouse and 5 Magazine. "I am just scratching the surface of my imagination, there is so much

that I have in mind to create” … Eunika Simmons.
Her collection ranges from exotic swimwear to beautiful women overcoats.

She also creates couture dresses with matching hats, handbags, and
jewelry to compliment her designs. She chooses fabrics that captures
her eye and stimulates her imagination.

"My clothing is geared towards the free spirit, those who love life and
fashion..the only limits in life which exist are the ones we place on
ourselves. Let the sky be the limit”-- Eunika Simmons
