During the show Nikki presented five looks out her graduation collection named As we seek our face. A collection with which she investigated her personal fear of being in the spotlights versus the pressure of social media to promote yourself as a unique, outstanding character. Anonymity, femininity, covering up and exposing were the focus points in the collection full of long, lean, striped and beautifully colored creations.
