On Part Two of my BLOG on the Disney X FIDM: Frozen II Collaboration, (click HERE for Part One!) it's time to showcase the NIKOLAKI gown David and I created, inspired by Disney FROZEN II's "Elsa"...

Elsa by NIKOLAKI/Nick Verreos & David Paul--Sequined gown design inspired by "Frozen II"'s Elsa, Fashion Illustration--DISNEY X FIDM: Frozen II Collaboration

A refresher: Disney approached the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM to partner on the project that would showcase the FASHION aspect of "Frozen II" and its characters and "Elements" in the film. While two FIDM Graduates created two "Streetwear"-inspired designs each, we decided to give "Elsa" her Red Carpet due...and design a fabulous, glorious and elegant "red carpet"-inspired gown worthy of Elsa and an event she would attend in Arandelle, naturally...
As part of the Collaboration, we held a photoshoot at the L.A. Loft in West Hollywood, to photograph all the designs, including the "Streetwear" ones and of course, our NIKOLAKI gown. In this BLOG, I'll be covering our gown photoshoot and in a future BLOG, I will showcase the other fabulous designs from our FIDM Graduates...

Here are my Behind-the-Scenes of the "Elsa" Photoshoot:
