Formspring Q&A

Hey cuties!
I've been getting some questions on formspring [keep it up] and I decided to post a few questions and my answers here every once in a while.

Who are your favorite designers?

Assuming you mean fashion designers: Vivienne Westwood, for sure! I think she is an amazing person as well as a groundbreaking designer, and she is mostly self-taught! She maintains personal strength and a political standpoint in an extremely looks- based industry. She also combined music and fashion in a way that made the two things inseparable even today. <3 I also think Alexander McQueen is crazy and brilliant, and Marc Jacobs has done some really awesome things. And a few of my very talented friends are great designers!

What one thing are you exceptionally good at?


What's the most challenging part about Parsons? What's the best part? (:

The most challenging part about Parsons is getting all of my work finished, on time, to the BEST of my ability, on little amounts of sleep, haha! Also it can be tough to keep ahold of myself and my artistic vision when working around so many talented people and tough professors. The BEST part? Definitely all of the people I have met, from all over the world, who are awesome in their own way. I have learned so much both inside and outside of class, and I feel grateful every day to be studying at an amazing university in the most fabulous and unpredictable city. :]

This is what a Parsons all-nighter looks like!

What's your biggest aspiration?

aspiration: strong desire or goal; the release of a strong burst of air after some obstructions. the 2 definitions make sense together, don't you think? this is a tough one, but I have a few goals for my life: open a music venue/fashion boutique with my own line, to combine the ultimate creative experience for the soul; travel the world and learn as much as possible so i can give something special to the world; and inspire and motivate others to do the same!

Whats ur biggest regret?

"When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did" (H. Jackson Brown) I tend to agree with this. However, I try not to have regrets! You can't change the past, so just focus on trying to make the future better.

what's it like going to an art school? is EVERYONE in your classes super artsy/ talented? are ur teachers / other students harsh in critiques?

most people in my classes are really talented, but everyone is good at different things or talented in a different way, which i love. it can get intimidating, and some students and most of the teachers can be really harsh in critiquing. i love it though! i also wrote a little about my experience with school so far here: My Experience at Parsons so Far

What kind of clothes do ya want to design? What do you have to offer to the industry?

i want to design all kinds of things: i dream about all kinds of things. i want to challenge the way people see fashion and show how the challenges of the world contrast with the beauty of the human body. i also like to use the way that music and fashion are intertwined in things i design: hello performance artists and rock stars, i'm yours. honestly, my dream is to see something i've designed on Lady Gaga.! she's amazing and brings everything she wears to life

Thanks for the questions everyone, keep 'em coming!
xx, Nikkidee :]
