Nikki is a Brooklyn-based costume designer and stylist. She grew up in New Jersey where she played tennis at Fairfield University, and then went on to teach the sport in Manhattan immediately after graduating. But soon thereafter she decided to connect with her true passion—styling and fashion. She worked in various fashion-related positions until she landed her first wardrobe gig on an MTV show, where she met Yusuke Sato, Riverside Bench's cinematographer! She has since worked on a wide variety of TV shows and films, as well as styling for music videos and many celebrities! Nikki's artistry is evident in the shifting colors of "The Riverside Bench" actors' wardrobes, which she chose with intention to harmonize with the hues of the seasons as they changed over the course of our filming cycle.
