When we photographed 26 year old Nixon Sola outside the Labels Style Markets in Adelaide, we had no idea the stylist and couturist had a strong design pedigree. As he tells it, his immediate family all work in fashion and design – both parents, his brother in Melbourne and his sister, who has just completed her design course in France. Even his grandparents on both sides worked in the industry and Nixon’s uncle worked for Chanel and Givenchy.
Speaker of 7 languages, we caught up with Marseilles born Nixon, who has lived in Australia for five years, just before he jetted out to style a wedding in Norway. Yes, he also speaks Norwegian.
Modelling for Westfield Marion, Nixon was styled by Westfield’s South Australian Senior Stylist Lauren Dilena who decided on a refreshingly Aussie look for the normally suit-clad Nixon.
