CHICAGO DESIGNER JERMIKKO’S DESIGNS MAKE IT TO THE BIG SCREEN
Over the weekend, it was announced officially the Chicago based designer Jermikko that she could shout from the mountaintop — her designs have made it to the big screen! Academy Award nominated actress Angela Bassett (What’s Love Gotto Do with It, Black Nativity) will wear select Jermikko items in the upcoming Spike Lee feature film, Chi-Raq. Filming for the much talked about movie took place in areas of Chicago and wrapped Friday, July 10th.
When asked about the news, the talented designer had this to say, “I am beyond thrilled to be part of such a powerful film, even more thrilled that Mr. Lee reached out to local Chicago talent and with the help from my unique designs, bring this pivotal character to life.” The movie’s release date is scheduled for December. Amazon will launch the film as a new venture into the film industry. We here at Jermikko Production Facility and Magnificent Mile boutique couldn’t be more thrilled about the news.
