SUSTAINABLE FASHION STYLIST

I’ve been a celebrity stylist and fashion show coordinator for 20 years. I’ve spoken all over the world including NYC, LA, Miami, Lusaka Zambia, Bali, and Abu Dhabi.

My path is unique because I focus on sustainable clothing. I can also consult you on fabric options.

I believe LUXURY should benefit the makers as well as the design team. Fabulous finds have personalized stories that can be shared by collecting special pieces. If you’re on a BUDGET I can lead you to affordable Fairtrade organic cotton undies, recycle fiber fabric, Tencel (oh so soft), food crop waste fabric by Circular Systems, and the secondhand clothing market (online) is booming while fast fashion is flailing. So many online and unique shopping experiences.

From Red Carpet Green Dress to Fashion Revolution to Common Objectives to BEYOND THE LABEL I’ll connect you with influencers that share your style esthetic whether you’d like to be styled in vegan clothes, ethically ...

After answering my initial questions she handed me off to her scheduling coordinator who gives poor customer service and was unwilling to give me the schedule I wanted. I was very polite in all of my emails but the scheduler simply stopped replying to my emails. Ridiculous that they are so inflexible an unwilling to cater to the student's needs. Thanks for making the process of learning to sew a stressful experience. People like you are the reason for all the problems in our world.

"Ms. Nike is one of the best teachers and even Mentors I have ever had, she does not just stick to a curriculum on paper really makes you think and makes you question everything, I have learned so much from her just from her breaking down subjects into much greater depth, things you would have never have thought of that can help you make better/wiser decisions. Ms. Nike is someone you will learn something new from everytime you are around her, and she just knows how to breathe positivity and energy into others."
