Nick Drapes a German Goddess... Heidi Klum in NIKOLAKI by Nick Verreos/David Paul, Models of The Runway, Season 7 On Thursday's episode of Lifetime's Models of The Runway, UBERmodel Heidi Klum, during the all-important Model Elimination, strutted from the Project Runway scrim, in...one of my (and my design partner David Paul's) dresses. It was a NIKOLAKI ivory silk jersey side-cowl draped one-shoulder dress with a contrasting black silk Duchesse strap.Model Dominique in the original long silk jersey and silk Duchesse one shoulder NIKOLAKI gown The original dress was a long gown we showed at our Spring 2008 "W Hotel Collection" but it was customized for Miss Klum naturally--she loves it short and of course, she was pregnant. I think she looked GORGEOUS! And stood out amongst all the models in their black slip dresses. I am sure the director and producers (and lighting people) were not so happy that she was wearing white but I am happy it was "approved". Thank you to Heidi and to her exquisitely talented stylist, Maryam Malakpour for supporting Project Runway Alumn like myself! She'll wear the dress in the beginning of next week's Project Runway episode, so make sure to catch it!
