2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Nichelle Bancey
“I was born and raised in Jamaica. I grew up loving the fashion industry and living on a small island with not much opportunities, I decided to take my studies to the US. After attending the prestige, Fashion Institute of Technology, I discovered a love for makeup and everything beauty. “ ~ Nichelle Bancey
Ugh this is a hard one! Umm… definitely Elie Saab, a recent favorite is LaQuan Smith.
The place of fashion in Nichelle’s life:
Fashion influences every part of my life. I create looks based on my mood and events in my life. As I get older and grow as a person, so does my style.
My signature piece is a comfortable pair of distressed, high-waisted mom Jeans because who doesn’t love a great fitting pair of jeans?!
We asked Nichelle, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”
Wow who wouldn’t I trade my closet with is a better question haha! But if I must choose… Beyoncé!
“And would you actually do it?”
And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.
Nichelle told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.
The fashion industry is known as one of the biggest contributors to pollution and so, whenever I shop in stores I bring a bag of unwanted clothes with me for recycling.
