I haven't done a Real Life Style Inspiration segment in a while, so I felt like who better to start off the New Year than the fabulous Nick Ottaviano. He happens to be one of my friends here in Los Angeles, but I was initially drawn to him due to his amazing, eccentric sense of style. Nick is a Promoter, Photographer and student who describes his personal clothing style as a Harajuku club kid meets Nickelodeon. He draws inspiration from club culture, modern-day club kids and the twerk scene here in LA. He enjoys shopping at unique stores and brands like Squaresville, Replay, Mamadoux and The Cobrashop...and his favorite thing to do is collaborate with his friends on creative projects. With his signature lime green hair, you can tell Nick is a fascinating, larger than life character. His favorite music artist is Azelia Banks, favorite color is orange and favorite book is Terryworld. I also find it important to mention that his favorite shoes are a pair of 6-inch platforms purchased at a Halloween Store. That should explain a lot! The future definitely looks bright for Nick, but right now he's focused on branding himself as an artist, beginning a promotion company with his best friend (Turnt Team Promotion), and getting ready to move to New York at the end of summer. I'm so excited to see what creative venture he will tackle next!
