Funky Monkey looking for local fashion designers

If you’re an Oklahoma fashion designer, Jennifer Najera would like to hear from you.

Najera is the owner of Funky Monkey clothing boutique at 14101 N May. She plans to feature the work of local fashion-focused designers on her new website,  Shop.FunkyMonkeyOKC.com.

“We’re looking for styles that are unique and fun, items that really showcase Oklahoma’s imagination and design,” Najera said.

Najera discovered a love of fashion while traveling with her husband, Charlotte Bobcats’ basketball player Eduardo Najera. After returning to Oklahoma City, she realized there was a lack of upscale children’s boutiques. Funky Monkey, her vision for a one-stop shopping destination for the entire family, opened three years ago.

Najera said all merchandise for the online site must be an original creation. For more information, check out the website at www.funkymonkeyokc.com.
