Friday, August 3, 2012 Guest Edit: 2001: A Niki Takesh Odyssey
2001 will forever be my favorite year. Not only was it the best year in fashion, movies, tv, and music, but something about Y2K continues to intrigue and inspire me. I think people had really high expectations for the new millennium and thought that everything would become super robotic and futuristic overnight. Fashion totally evolved along with the rest of the world, leaving its mark as my favorite year in fashion.
I’ve had a sick obsession with holographic rainbows all my life, which probably explains why my favorite clothing items are ones that change colors when you move in them. I’m also super into heavy, bold and uncommon prints – especially if it’s reminiscent of Nickelodeon slime. I’m an ironic person and it shows through what I wear. If you think about it, you’re getting ready for the future every day. Why not dress like it? Blast off into my universe and check out my stint as Nasty Gal’s newest vintage model!
