Nikki Chasin takes leisure seriously. After graduating from Parsons in 2012, the Miami-born, New York-based designer set out to combine the ease of classic sportswear with playful textiles and thoughtful details, for women who dress to impress nobody but themselves. The spirit of her namesake label is at once classic and playful, with a streak of tongue-in-cheek rebelliousness. Her pieces are feminine but un-fussy, and elegant without taking themselves too seriously. Nikki was chosen as part of the Racked Young Guns Class of 2014, as well as the Design Entrepreneurs of NYC program at FIT. Read the full interview with Nikki Chasin here.
