Nik_Gold Designs is my business, baby and passion. I've been working on more pieces for this year. These are some of my previous creations! If you would like to buy or use some of my pieces for styling purposes. Contact me Via FB, email (NikGoldDesigns@gmail.com) I also make custom pieces so the sky is the limit! I look forward to working with you. Press PLAY!
Heading into the fall with my fall/winter collection I have decided to preview and shoot with some custom pieces in the mean time. With my sewing skills growing I get to work with many different materials and enjoyed roaming the isles of MOOD when I was in NYC earlier this month. I can't believe how fast this summer went by!
Now it's back to business as I continue to expand my brand and grow my skills in making clothes, customizing pieces and of course hand making jewelry and accessories.
I can't wait to style my newest pieces in my photo shoot coming up and show you whats in store for Nik_Gold Designs!

I, Nicole Ayilola of Nik_Gold Designs have had the pleasure of writing the feature story/interview from one of my favorite rappers/creators Big Boi in @BEmagazines 2nd annual men's issue.
(If you haven't seen the first article in which I also wrote with "Think Like a Man's" producer William Packer, and former BET host now E! news host Terrance J ), BEmagazine First Men's Issue ft Nik_Gold
Not only have I been tantalized by Big Boi's creative rhythm but ultimate aura of pure genius and coolness that emits seamlessly.
You can find out more when the issue is released the first week of May. #STAYTUNED
2012 has been some year. Words cannot even explain it. I have grown and watched the world change rapidly around me. As long as I have been alive I have the same two qualities I'd love to hate, actually I'm pretty sure I hate both. That's why I'm making a change, more than a resolution but a positive change for the betterment of my life.
Between situations changing rapidly and more and more people I know just leaving Earth without notice I know how precious this life we have is. Honestly, the present is a present and people take it for granted *raises hand* I do too.
Between procrastinating and the depressing feeling of contentment and over thinking or stressing over the BS life throws your way from time to time, one of the quicksand potholes will have you preaching "Tomorrow is a new day" instead of "Just do it" or "Now is the time!"
I realized this life is a blank canvas, every second and experience we have paints our canvas and makes it dense with intensity, lessons and the true stains of life. I'm ready for the journey and truly tired of being tired. Sleep is the cousin of death and procrastination is the devil whispering in your ear.
Learn and live _GOLD.
I love to write for BE magazine! I've been writing essays and stories since I could remember and have been a published journalist since high school. Combining my love for all things fashion and my passion for journalism I am still thanking God for more experience and the opportunity to write a interview article on Mimi Faust.
The Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast member I also accessorized in Nik_Gold Accessories for the @BEmagazine benefit fashion show this past November (Read that post HERE). Meeting her and talking to her gave me insight on the down to earth and entrepreneur she really is, while forming an article on her recent success and appeal to her fans was a pleasure and true motivation. I love networking and meeting different people with strong goals and morals.

I had the pleasure of working with Natasha for Part 2/3 of Nik_Gold Designs photo shoot premiere.
These are Part 1 and Part 2 where I am going for a spunky denim/camo feel
and the plaid/studded hipster.
Nik_Gold Designs is the brand bringing a royal feel to looks from grudge to glam.
Live life like it's golden!
It felt good to not only style and accessorize but to be in front of the camera once again. Modeling has always been a passion of mine since my younger days in New York and I must say it brings me life to pose and strut again on the runway.
Look out world I'm serving face!
Snapped a quick photo of me at my first official fitting for @BEmagazine @nwhTROIS fashion show. I opted for a chill yet classy look on the brisk November night.
I absolutely love my pointy toe highlighter heels. I'm used to wearing heels higher than 4" but I still felt very girly in this number!
I love patterns, so this trend of big bold prints does me justice along with a beautiful colored skinny jeans and point heel shoe with my own Nik_Gold Accessories and a sharp middle part bob.

The fabulous and talented Tichina Arnold dominates the latest cover of BE Mag Holiday issue and is also casted in TV Land's sitcom "Happily Divorced" also featuring another 90's sitcom love Fran from The Nanny.
