It’s been over a week since Preview's Best Filipino Fashion Designer 2023 awardee, Chris Nick, debuted his latest collection at the Bench Fashion Week Holiday 2023 show, and we’re still reeling from his ’70s cowboy denim dream. Think mini skirts, perfectly tailored low-waist trousers, and suit jackets to match! Oh, and let's not forget the tank tops emblazoned with cheeky slogans. Now that we think about it, we suddenly can't wait to see what he has in store for us next in the upcoming BYS Fashion Week!
Always one to surprise us on and off the runway, Chris Nick is definitely one of the it designers to wear now. It's no wonder celebrities and it girls flock to him for their sartorial needs.
Often bringing Chris' collections to life are his celebrity muses, whom he fondly calls his "Angels." These local it girls not only have the same sensual and elegant style as Chris himself but also the attitude to match.
"A 'Chris Nick Angel' to me is someone with the right attitude—of course, I personally have to like her style and her overall look, but it all boils down to attitude," Chris says of his stylish clique. "These are my girls, you know? They have my back, and I have theirs—it’s like a family, almost."
Curious to know who they are? Ahead, we've listed down the dream girls who are always donning Chris' designs on and off the runway.
