As the founder of NIKOLAKI women’s wear clothing line and an instructor at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, designer Nick Verreos is most-recently recognized as one of the contestants on Season Two of the hit Bravo reality TV show “Project Runway.”
He’s also one of our favorite celebrity Star Wars fans. So we couldn’t help but smile when he made a Star Wars reference in a recent episode of “Project Runway Canada.” Appearing as a guest mentor for the designers as they visited Los Angeles from Canada, Verreos offered suggestions on their designs, with one notable comment for designer Evan Biddell’s punk-rock inspired creation: “That’s very Jedi resort!”
