Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, Nilly.
I always liked to dress up. ever since I was young I used to combine cloths to make unique outfits all my friends use to admire. I liked clothes and liked to make interesting combinations of them.
When I grew up I became a stylist for TV shows and celebs and after a while I felt that there is a niche missing in women's clothing: clothes that are feminine and comfortable at the same time. I felt that women's clothes weren't comfortable enough to wear so I decided to go into fashion design, and here I am.
What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
I love choosing fabrics for my clothing
I love to go into the fabric store and look at all the colors and patterns, touch and feel all the textures, and then finding that special one that will become a dress or a top. It is a celebration for me.
What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Keeping track of inventory, running the books: receipts invoices etc...I am very bad with all that accounting stuff
When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I always liked to dress up but I didn't think I would become a fashion designer.
I wanted to become an actress.
