CelebrityDialogue: How and when did you develop interest in fashion?
Nicole: When I was 5 years old, I began collecting fabulous shoes for my Barbie dolls…36 pairs of Barbie shoes and later I was hooked! I think I loved my Barbie’s clothes and shoes more than the dolls.
Upon graduation from UCLA with a double major in Psychology and American Literature and Culture, I started searching for an artistic outlet to balance my very science-heavy job in research at the UCLA Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Just for fun, I began to write fashion reviews for small local magazines in LA.
Eventually, LA Direct Magazine founders asked me to develop their fashion editorial section, which I happily accepted. As the Fashion Editor, I began styling numerous covers and editorials.
Styling came naturally to me. It clicked! I took a leap of faith and decided to leave the world of academia and start my career as a fashion stylist. Then, just like everyone else, I worked hard to build my portfolio and resume by doing test shoots and assisting other stylists. I slowly grew my business over time.
CelebrityDialogue: For which events generally do celebrities come to you for styling?
Nicole: My clients come to me for everything and anything! I’ve styled my clients for the Academy Awards, American Music Awards, MTV Video Awards, Latin Grammy Awards, European Music Awards, movie premiers, high profile charity events, New York Fashion Week, TV appearances and performances, weddings, engagement photos, and the list goes on.
Celebrity Dialogue: What is the range of services that you offer?
Nicole: Whether it’s a red carpet event, world concert tour, awards show, music video, album packaging, editorial photo shoot, or private wedding, I create eclectic, chic, and one-of-a-kind looks for every client.
