Enchants Hollywood with his gowns
Nick Verreos is a fashion designer, who became widely know in the US, after participating in Project Runway, an American reality television series hosted by Heidi Klum.
His philosophy about fashion designing comes down to the idea that every woman deserves to have her special “red carpet” moment.
He was born on the 13th of February 1967 in Missouri, but spent his childhood in Caracas, Venezuela. His mother came from Panama. Verreos and his family came back to the States when he was 10 years old. His father was a Grek-American diplomat. His mother’s uncle, Arnulfo Arias, served thrice as President of Panama (1940-41, 1949-1951, and for ten days in October 1968). Nick loved fashion from a really young age.
He graduated from UCLA, studying Political Science and International Relations. He then studied in Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising / FIDM, where he completed the Advanced Fashion Design Program in 1993.
In 2001, Nick, along with his partner David Paul, created his own firm, “NIKOLAKI”. It met huge success, and famous boutiques from all over the world (from Manhattan to Tokyo) would work with him. “NIKOLAKI” gowns designed by Verreos and Paul have been worn by a number of notable celebrities, including actress/singers, Katy Perry, Beyoncé , Eva Longoria and Carrie Underwood.
