Designer and Model Fab: Designers Nick Verreos and David Paul of NIKOLAKI with models in their NIKOLAKI Red Carpet Collection gowns--backstage at the special "Red Carpet Fashion Presentation", FIDM
This past Friday, I had the honor and opportunity--along with my co-designer David Paul--to showcase our NIKOLAKI Fall 2014 Red Carpet Gowns Collection at a special party to kick off the 2014 Los Angeles Democratic Convention. The party was held at Grand Hope Park, adjacent to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM Downtown L.A. campus. The event/party organizers were big fans of my designs and "Project Runway" and thought what better way to showcase the fact that LA and Hollywood is a Red Carpet Town by giving the guests of the party a little fashion show!
