This past Summer (in 2012!), I was invited to Florence Italy by do special lecture and fashion show presentation for the fabulous Miami University of Ohio "Summer in Italy" Program with my NIKOLAKI design and business partner David Paul. The fashion presentation--entitled "Florence Meets Hollywood"--occurred at the Florence University of the Arts' Sala Rosa and it was produced by Fashion Divo--and fabulous photographer--Jerry Lee Ingram.

David and I sent several of our NIKOLAKI high-end red carpet gowns to Italy for the presentation and they were shown alongside these gorgeous hat-and-feathered creations from Mazzanti Piume. The event was a great success and you can read all about it HERE. After we left Italy, the gowns stayed there: Jerry Ingram wanted to photograph them in Florence on a model, as well as later take them to the US--Illinois to be specific--where he was to do a special NIKOLAKI photoshoot in Jacksonville Illinois at the home of renown Home Stylist and Decorator Annie Brahler. The resulting photos are AMAZING! Bravo Jerry. I am glad my gowns inspired you to take such chic and fab photos!
