Nikki Williams stands alone when it comes to Australian handbag and accessory design.
What is the saying, “She dances to her own drum”.
Her handbags are luxurious and feminine, while always keeping one eye on trends and the other on wear-ability.
Nikki is dedicated to a style that is enduring and luxurious. Her designs “are timeless and made from the finest of leathers chosen for their texture, color and beauty”.
These images were taken by Nikki Williams’ Team, which I was lucky enough to see the entire collection.
All I must say is: WOW! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all!!!!!
MY AMAZING INTERVIEW WITH NIKKI WILLIAMS
Q1. What did you want to be growing up?
I always wanted to be a farmer. I love wide open spaces and riding horses. I grew up on a farm, so I guess it was a natural thing to want to do. My years on the farm are a great inspiration for me. I think growing up in a remote place gives you lots of opportunity to dream.
Q2. One magic word that best describe you?
Determined. If I say I’m going to do something, then I make sure it happens. I think you need a lot of determination in business. I’m a designer, but I’m also a business woman.
Q3. What platform have you used that has played a part in making your message successful?
I love Instagram, it’s so quick easy and such an effective way to communicate. As they say a picture tells a thousand words. It’s also a huge source of inspiration for me I love seeing what inspires others.
Q3. What advice do you have for other women looking to start their own journey?
Just start! I started my business by deciding to do one thing a day towards it – some days it was sending an email, others it was launching a website, but after about 900 days I had a business! I’ve jotted down four key tips for getting your business going in Anna’s upcoming book, so you do not want to miss it.
