I'm Nekesha (Nikki) Batchoukou and welcome to StyleByMeNikkiB! I am a fashion/print model, certified personal wardrobe consultant and full-time wife and mom.
Born in Houston Texas, now in New York City, I always had a dream of becoming a model after watching my fashion icon Naomi Campbell strut down countless catwalks and pose for many magazines. I thought. " If she can do it, why can't I?" I began modeling at age 12 in Texas and eventually signed a modeling contract in New York City. After navigating through the fashion industry I have fulfilled my modeling dreams. I now want to share my personal style, love for fashion, positivity and individualism with all that receive it. Fashion is more than clothing to cover your body. It's a form of expression that tells the world exactly who you are.
I've always had a passion for fashion and for helping women look their best no matter what shape or size. I have a less is more mentality as it relates to fashion and feel blessed that I can share my personal style with all of you.
I want to share the knowledge I've acquired over the years in the retail and fashion industry working along side the best of the best. I have worked with countless magazines such as Elle South Africa, Cosmopolitan USA, Cosmopolitan SA, Marie Claire SA and Essence to name a few. I've had the opportunity to also work for Jones New York, L'Oréal Soft Sheen Carson, VH1, Rent the Runway and fashion designer Catherine Malandrino. I strongly believe showing your personal style and being your best self is not about wearing fashion trends, it's about knowing what styles work best for you as an individual and then showcasing the hell out of it! I want to encourage all to find the fashionista within themselves and show the world exactly what you're made of!
