universe

I couldn't have been happier when I received this simple but stunning dress in my mailbox from one of my favorite local designers, Nina Nikicio. I've always loved her minimalist approach towards fashion. Her basic line, NN:02, is like Indonesia's own T by Alexander Wang while her latest Mixté collection is a blend of city sleek with slight hints of grunge. These photo sets were actually inspired by Nikicio's Project 04 Paper Dresses (yes you read that right.. a dress made out of paper), the re-turn dress had this sunset photo printed on it, so I thought, why not try the universe instead of just the sun on the black dress and dark hair of mine?
