This young fashion designer

Some ink, a sketchbook, his dreams, and a love for fashion was all Nick Perez needed to pave his own way into the fashion design industry.


At 19 years old, Perez makes a living off designing bridal and couture gowns and will be the first designer from Corpus Christi to show his line, NICO and compete at Austin Fashion Week April 5.


Perez will compete with about a dozen emerging designers in the BERNINA Fashion Fund.


Awards include a judges’ choice award crowning the official 2018 BERNINA Fashion Fund winner and a people’s choice award. The judges’ choice winner will receive a prize from BERNINA and other brands to allow them to expand their label, and will also go on to represent the BERNINA Fashion Fund at Fashion X Dallas and Fashion X Houston in the Fall of 2018, officials said.


Perez, who is originally from Aransas Pass and living and working out of his studio in Corpus Christi has been designing since he was in high school, he said.


"I've always loved art and loved to draw but when I took a fashion design class in high school and I just fell in love with fashion," Perez said.


He started off designing and making prom dresses for his friends in school and his work and clientele grew from there, he said.


"I went from making street wear and edgy pieces to making couture gowns," Perez said, "I love taking time to make these pieces, I love that there's a story to tell and they're really pieces of art."


Last year, Perez's work was on the South Texas International Fashion and the WERK runways.


"I'm a dreamer. I really am. I come from humble beginings and everything I do is for my family," Perez said. "I love what I do and I'm so happy to know that I can sew and paint for a living.


"Ultimately I want people to know my brand and where these clothes come from. I want everyone to be wearing NICO."Read more at:blue bridesmaid dresses | red bridesmaid dresses
