1—Nina, who is one celebrity you would most want to design a dress for?
Iris Apfel is a woman who I desire to work with. She is ” MY KIND OF Girl “!!!!!!
2—Can you share what you most love about being able to design for so many women and how each of them can tap into their unique energy and create their own style?
Being a fashion designer for many years I have been honored to dress thousands of women! Women of different ages, different social and financial states. But all of them have one thing in common-they are all celebrities! They are celebrities because they love and respect themselves, they know they are different and show their difference to the world. They have great taste and they are smart enough to listen to a professional. Those women know the golden rule of being dressed well- QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY!
4—What is your idea of dressing from day into evening with ease?
To transform yourself from day to evening is the easiest thing to do! First, always have in your purse beautiful red lipstick, a refreshing mist to hydrate your face, a makeup bag to enhance your beauty. And, of course, if you are wearing a good looking dress or suit at work, add an incredible piece of jewelry, I mean, make a huge statement with a pin, earrings, ring, necklace. Use only something unusual and unique. Put on a beautiful scarf. My advice is to wear your accessories in a very unexpected way.
