Behind the scenes - super-mum model Nikki
Model and Mummy Nikki has just partnered with us to bring to life our latest upcoming collections: Urban Gypsy and Queen of Everything. Like many working Mums, Nikki is incredibly busy balancing 'work life' vs. 'Mum life' and she was incredible to work with whilst also fixing our baby fever by bringing her daughter Amani onset who was an absolute doll. We caught up with Nikki to discuss how she balances motherhood and working.
As a brand, we are passionate about being for women of all ages with the goal to make them all feel beautiful. Our experience working with Nikki was one that we felt strongly about sharing as she is the epitome of the modern busy woman. She was multitasking the whole way through shoot and was just a gorgeous and very 'real' woman.
