Nikolle is our fashionista and sewer extraordinaire. She is also a new(ish) mom. We’re excited to have a little chat with her about all of the above!.
Where does your interest in fashion come from?
Growing up with my grandma by my side. She is really stylish and passed it on to both my mom and me. When we were young, my cousin and I would put on her make-up and wear her high heels.
Did you study fashion? Where?
I studied for two years in Los Angeles – fashion design and pattern making. Then I studied two more years in Miami. It was at fashion school that I learned to sew. Everyone learns to sew.
Do you see yourself working in fashion in the future?
I would like to work alongside a designer for the experience and then have my own clothing line. All designers want their own fashion collection!
What has surprised you most about motherhood?
How much I learn from my son. He knows songs (mostly from tv) that I don’t know! And – how beautiful it is to carry a baby and then watch him grow.
What advice would you give to a new(ish) mom?
To take it one day at a time – and don’t be scared. Everyone is unprepared for the job.
What do you like most about working at Couture Planet?
I love seeing the fashion ads become a bag. It’s a great way to stay in touch with what’s going on in the fashion world.
