She started from the bottom, now she’s here.

Nini Nguyen, also known as Ninistyle, is a Vietnamese fashionista who is in her mid 20s. In high school, she used to walk by name brand stores such as Banana Republic and Neiman Marcus, wishing she had the money to afford their expensive styles. She eventually started working at Banana Republic as a janitor until one day the manager was short staffed and asked her to help out. That day, she sold $3000 worth of merchandise to her first customer. Needless to say that from then her fashion career kicked off.

Nini now has over 14 years of experience in the fashion industry. She is a fashion consultant to many and has worked for big name companies like Neiman Marcus and Barneys. Nini preaches that one does not have to have a safe full of cash to look like a million bucks. Her goal is to help women feel confident and sexy in their own bodies.

Here are 16 of our favorite Nini looks!

  • I am a Junior at Wingate University, about 30 minutes south of Charlotte, North Carolina. I am currently a pre-pharmacy student and hope to begin Pharmacy School in a year. It is my dream to travel the world and learn about different cultures. All my friends know if I could travel anywhere in the world at the moment, it would be Santorini, Greece.
