Iryna Storozhuk for Kam Thompson / by Simon Soong

Kamulah Thompson, a 23 year old Jamaican- American,  and recent graduate of the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, is a contemporary fashion designer, who specializes in ready-to-wear women’s apparel,  but also designs swimwear, children’s-wear, accessories and menswear. She holds the philosophy that all can be fashion-minded, be their dress simple or extreme.  She is well travelled and views each nation and its peoples as an avenue of expression for both uniqueness and similarity, and tries to incorporate these findings into her designs as well as inspirations from even the most unlikely sources. Kamulah takes pride in being able to keep up with the trends but at the same time maintain a level of classic sophistication.

Prior to receiving her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Kamulah resided in Mandeville, Jamaica, where she pursued an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration. Later on in life, she also plans on going back to school to earn a MBA with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship.  She plans to use her education and cultural backgrounds from both countries to eventually start her own clothing line. Her mindsets in life, which have helped her overcome her many obstacles so far are “God never gives us more than we can bear” and “Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will”.
Her passion for fashion lies in how one can use something as simple as an article of clothing or a style of dress to portray their mood at the time or convey their personality in a single glance. It amazes her how just one accessory or lack thereof, can make or break a fashion statement one is trying to make. She loves being a part of the fashion industry and helping others to express themselves through her creations, giving women that extra boost of confidence in their step that comes from knowing they are clad in the perfect outfit.
