She may not be a household name yet, but with her theatrical designs and some of Hollywood’s movers and shakers adorning themselves in her pieces, you will no doubt soon get to know who the very talented Roxanne Nikki really is. Vancouver based and Winnipeg born, Nikki is no newcomer to the fashion business – having worked in many facets of the industry and ultimately launching her self-titled label in 1994, this local designer has done Montreal, Paris and more. With a keen eye for womenswear, she also successfully designs a menswear line – a truly daunting task to most designers. Clean, modern lines, with the theatrics of a rockstar, her latest collection cohesively covers a contemporary woman with an edge and an eye for luxurious fabrics, and a man with a bold statement to make. It is no wonder strong women have appeared in her designs – case in point, Milla Jovovich in “The Messenger” campaign. Wearable, a little wild and certainly not dull, local is anything but boring with Nikki in the mix, and we can’t wait to see what she designs next.
