Pini studied fashion design in the city of Boston at Massachusetts College of Art & Design. As soon as he received his BFA, he went on to create 8 full collections for his namesake brand called “Pini”.
There was not a hat he did not wear; he worked with the Kalajian’s in New York at International pleating to craft perfectly pleated silk CDC. He sketched, pattern drafted, sewed and built each collection by hand. Editorials, Runway shows and Lookbooks were all produced by Pini and often times photographed by himself as well. This body of work is a labor of love and has taught the artist a great deal about the inner workings of a fashion brand.
Currently, Nick is working as a freelance illustrator, designer and is also working as a stylist at Lucky Brand Jeans in Los Angeles.
Clients: Mariah Carey, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Shania Twain, Chrome Hearts, Lucky Brand Jeans, Kimber Chronic, Brett Nelson, Johnny Wujek.
