Aminah Abdul-Jillil was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Aminah began as a professional dancer in Los Angeles, California performing with some of the biggest names in music including Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. She's appeared in commercials for Pepsi, Mazda and New Balance and recently performed as lead character "Crimson" in Cirque du Soleil's BELIEVE.
In 2012, after completing her third world tour with Britney Spears, Aminah launched her first collection of women's shoes selling mostly online and a few L.A based boutiques including the iconic Fred Segal. Her first collection did quite well when Rihanna chose to wear one of her designs in the Where Have You Been music video! Aminah's career as a dancer has taken her around the world and cultivated her eye for culture, art, design and fashion. She hopes to continue with both of her passions and is excited to see where they take her next.
What makes Aminah Abdul-Jillil's designs unique is her excitement to "try something different". Here's a few pics of shoes from her collection.
