A.I: Gives us a quick run down of: who you are, where you're from (originally), and your chosen form of expression.
They call me Nicole, born in Manatí, Puerto Rico and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. For me, fashion is how I choose to express myself. I'm truly to into art, therefore, the more curious I become about art, the more appealing fashion becomes as well. Creativity and freedom are two of the most appealing things about life, and fashion allows to me to share this daily.
A.I: So how do you feel your culture impacts your clothing choices?
Nicole: At a young age I was introduced to fashion mainly because of my culture. Puerto Ricans from the island tend to use vibrant colors in all facets of their life, right down to the color of their homes. So I have a great appreciation for color, however, you'll find that my closet consist of darker hues.
A.I: Who are your favorite designers, and why?
Nicole: Milusha London for outerwear is by far my favorite label, also being that I am a huge fan of fur, her most recent collection, is right up my alley. Charlie May is another one of my favorite designers for chic-casual wear. I also have to include a high-end fashion label, and that would have to be Balmain. I love Olivier Rousteing’s intricate detailing when he makes his pieces. It's such a timeless form of art.
A.I: Explain your style at the moment?
Nicole: I prefer a clean, polished look, which has me leaning towards more chic, casual attire. My go-to color scheme is black, grey, white, and nude. I also love anything Yeezy inspired because it’s a smart approach to comfortable stylish clothing.
A.I: Before we wrap this up, let us know, what's the biggest lesson you've learn in life, or with style up for that matter?
Nicole: The biggest lesson I've learned in life is – you must to continue to evolve, and maintain a positive mindset under any circumstance.
