A boy called Nicola!

Even shadowed by the grey sky and drizzling rain I knew clearly by 2pm that today would end having been a very good day. 


Parce que I got to meet and chat to Nicola Formichetti! And before I lose those of you who have no idea who he is, he is the genius stylist and fashion director behind Lady Gaga. As well as having been fashion director of Dazed & Confused magazine and currently holding the role of creative director at French luxury label Thierry Mugler. 

Regardless of your opinions of Lady Gaga or her (in reality Nicola's) let's say unique sense of style. He has been a major force in propelling  her to global stardom. She is renowned for wearing, a latex Queen Elizabeth I style dresse, a dress made of meat, a crystal gyro-sphere in her Bad Romance video, all of which were selected by Mr Formichetti. Half Italian, half Japanese his international upbringing oozes through his work to create playful yet incredibly classy and aspirational images. 

Meeting the man himself at 39.39 on Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, London. 
In the flesh he is effortlessly cool, wearing an own branded Nicopanda white cap, jersey sweater cut out at the underarms (maybe to avoid sweat patches, I knew I should have asked) and jogging bottoms. 

The Dazed & Confused  Fantasia December issue is available now off the shelf for £4.50 so head out and get an insight into an alternative style maven.
