Niki Heat a premier professional makeup studio and fashion design shop opens  in Bamenda.

Niki Heat launched on March 5, 2015 with a vision to create an entirely new mind set and outlook on fashion in contemporary Bamenda and Cameroon at large. Niki Heat is the fusion between bold, colorful, and modern African designs that creates a unique look and feel. The designs are trendy, accessible, and ready-to-wear. This clothing and professional makeup brand wants to bridge the gulf which exists between high-end designer haute couture and everyday retail chain/bargain bin clothing. It also specializes in complementary accessories such as African fabric-covered handbags, bracelets, necklaces, and shoes. Niki Heat truly represents what every fashion-conscious Cameroonian wants.

Niki Heat wants to lead charge in altering the culture of mediocrity that exists within the indigenous garment creation industry; a culture which has caused locally made clothing to be associated with poor quality. This will be achieved by delivering premium quality and styling through an almost obsessive attention to detail.

On the makeup side, Niki Heat wishes to change the widely held notion that ‘Bamenda woman no know how for make nyanga’. Niki Heat is able to do this by providing the first state-of-the-art makeup studio in Bamenda complete with Hollywood lights. In addition to the classy locale, it has talented makeup artists who use brands patronized by Hollywood, Nollywood & Collywood stars such as MAC, NYX, LA Girl, Zaron, SHANY, Mary Kay, Victoria Secret, and BH Cosmetics just to name a few. To complement its makeup and fashion design, Niki Heat sells original, fashionable, and brand new shoes, jewelry, handbags, makeup products all imported from the USA.

A cynic would wonder where Niki Heat will find skilled designers and makeup artists in Bamenda but they’d be surprised to hear that Abakwa is packed with talented youths who ask only for the opportunity to showcase and grow their God-given potential. As with any raw talent, they are rough on the edges so Niki Heat is partnering with local experts to work with the team and accelerate their progression from good to great.

Finally, we see modeling and event planning as natural extensions of our concept and are establishing the first truly professional modeling agency in Bamenda called Niki Heat Modeling and a professional event organizing and décor outfit called Niki Heat Events (details to follow). Training and internships are offered for all our services because as the saying goes ‘the power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better’. All this may sound too ambitious for such a young company but remember that sharks are born swimming! Contact: Twitter: @niki_heat_real  and on Youtube: @NikiHeat
