Amanda: What does fashion mean to you?
Nici: I think Yves Saint Laurent quote "Fashion is fade, style is eternal" describes well what fashion means to me. I see fashion as a good source of inspiration, and I often get good ideas from it, but even the fashions change all the time, my style remains the same. Still I do love fashion.
Amanda: How would you describe your personal style?
Nici: My style is elegant and classy, but still very special. I get inspired with the latest fashions and mix them to my own style. I mostly use neutral colors like brown, black and white: I'm not really into colors. I also love vintage jewelry and accessories.
Amanda: What does your style say abut you?
Nici: That I want people to get a good first impression of me and to see me as an intelligent young woman. It also says how much I enjoy in creating my looks.
Amanda: Who are some of your favorite designers?
Nici: Hmm... At the moment I love Jeremy Scotts creative and young collections. I also like designers like Alexander Wang, Michael Kors and Christian Siriano.
Amanda: Are there any trends that you love right now?
Nici: Sure. I love fur, I think it's so elegant and fashionable. I also love camel colored clothes, trench coats and leather. I've got also several military styled clothes that I just love. All of these fashions fit so well to my style.
Amanda: What are your favorite clothing stores/websites/catalogs?
Nici: I love Zara and Mango. I think they have high quality clothes with so low prices. And the clothes are also fashionable! I also use websites like American Apparel and Topshop.

Nici: I dance. I just love it. It makes me forget everyting else. I also play golf and downhillski.
Amanda: Describe your self. What do you think about yourself and do you think people perceive you in the same way?
Nici: I'm a young fashion addict. I'm a social and loud person, with a lot of ambitious and determination. I think I have a great sense of humor, but I'm not sure if my friends think the same. :) I like to succeed in what I'm doing, and I don't leave anything half done. I also like to have people around me, and I don't get depressed about rush, I actually even like it. I know that sounds kinda weird, but I hate to be just lazy and rest. Fashion and dancing are my favorite entertainment, and I use a lot of time to both.
Amanda: Who is one celebrity that you would like to meet?
Nici: I guess designers like Alexander Wang, that are young and talented. I'd like to hear their succes stories from themselves. But I'm more interested in meeting old celebrities, that have already died, like Coco Chanel and Marilyn Monroe. I think they're both very interesting persons.
Amanda: What is your favorite quote?
Nici: I think Yves Saint Laurent quote "Fashion is fade, style is eternal"
is so true. I think even fashions change, you're style should be the one that remains the same, and the one that separates you from others.
