A Goldsboro dressmaker is getting some attention on the national stage.
Lilian K. Danieli owns Nashona Boutique in Downtown Goldsboro and designs her own line of dresses.
Recently, one of Danieli’s dresses was worn by vegan chef influencer Tabitha Brown on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Danieli says Brown has made several dress purchases, and her phone kept ringing the day Brown appeared on Ellen.
Danieli’s Nashona dresses are handmade in Tanzania, where she was born.
Danieli says her Nashona brand supports Tanzanian women as well as an orphanage in the country.
If you’ve ever been in Nashona Boutique or even just happened past the Downtown Goldsboro store, you’ve likely noticed the eye-catching dresses.
The designs are typical to Tanzanian fashion, and all the fabrics come from Tanzania.
Danieli has been designing dresses since 2013, and she opened her Goldsboro store about 2 ½ years ago.
Nashona Boutique is located at 102 E. Walnut Street in Downtown Goldsboro.
