On June 21st, 2012 RAW Nashville put on an event at Mercy Lounge that showcased the work of independent local photographers, fashion designers, artists, singers and film makers. One of the local talent showcased was April Nicolaides, owner of Ferocity jewelry. The Avenue's Anne Hartley walked in Ferocity's show and we asked her a little about her experience.
This was the 2nd fashion show I've done. It was great! I had a lot of fun and met a lot of really cool people there.
My favorite part was walking! I love the rush it gives me! I also liked getting my hair and makeup done, because it's mostly a surprise--they don't show you what it looks like until you're done, and I didn't look anything like myself. It was awesome!
As a model, how does this compare to the other jobs you've had in the fashion industry?
Runway is more exciting than other things I've done as a model, because unlike photoshoots, it goes by quick and it's less standing around and having your picture taken--which is great too! it's more nerve racking though, because there's tons of people watching and you have to be careful not to fall.
Is fashion a big part of your life? Are you always up to date on the current trends?
Fashion is a HUGE part of my life. an entire wall in my room is covered top to bottom with fashion photography shots from Vogue and Teen Vogue magazines. I love reading fashion blogs and I'm always shopping!
How was working with the designer, April Nicolaides? Did you enjoy modeling her jewelry?
I really enjoyed working with April. she was really nice and I loved her jewelry--it was so edgy and unique!!
To keep up with everything Ferocity, follow April on twitter, or like her on Facebook! And keep an eye out for Anne Hartley on the runways! Cant wait to see what the future holds for these talented young ladies!
Do you have a favorite piece of jewelry in your closet?
