Bio
Hello!

For the past few years, I have been freelancing in the film, television, event & photo production, magazine publishing and fashion industries. I am capable working with a tight budget and doing all kinds of work from wardrobe supervision, costuming, shopping, art department, props, research, dance, theatre, and product placement. I have an extensive knowledge of different periods of costume and art direction as well as film, fashion, history, photography and art.

I have designed several period films that range from medieval to contemporary. Almost all of the films that I have designed I have handled the product placement. I have numerous contacts with beauty and fashion companies as well as modeling and photography agencies. Please check out my website www.NikiaNelson.com, my website has about 1/3 of my work. I also have a complete wardrobe kit and clothing stock.
