Start of 2010 Nini Nguyen was my very first blog feature...see below:
I've been reading her blog since she started and knew from day one that she would not be in Dallas long. I couldn't see this young lady not taking her designs/styling techniques to the next level and THAT she has done!

I refer to the following as RhiNiNi...Rhianna x Nini Nguyen's designs/styling techniques:

I am super excited for Nini and just as I said in the 2010 article "I'm excited to see what she'll bring to the game" in 2013! Go Nini!

Summer 2010 I expressed, in a few words, that this young lady is THE TRUTH (Check it out HERE). Every time I spot this Houstonian my "SHE WAS BORN THIS WAY" radar goes off. She reps FREE style, she could be the chairperson for the COOLEST MOTHERS ON THE PLANET UNION, she reps originality, she reps expression, she reps her city...MY CITY. Click HERE and try not to get intoxicated by her STEEZE...as a warning BEING INTOXICATED BY HER STEEZE CAN HAPPEN WITHOUT WARNING.
