Belle of the Week: Nanthale Collins

Meet our Belle of the Week, Nanthale Collins!

Nanthale E. Collins fashion carrier started with her own wardrobe. She always had a flair for great fashion and was complemented on her clothing selections wherever she went. Like most consultants she started her carrier by giving advice and styling tips to her friends and family. She grew her styling and people skills while working in a retail store. She perfected her skills in color selection, fitting and customer confidence. Her manager noticed her ability to teach customers and that knowledge made them come to their store more often. She started completing wardrobes & preparing outfit for her retail clients and gave workshops on fashion and dressing for success.

Nanthale's experience led her to work with a number of designers backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC, Full Figured Fashion Week in NYC, Bridal Fashion Week and other fashion show production companies.

Even though she graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in management and marketing she wanted to further her knowledge of fashion and enrolled into The Fashion Institute of Technology Certification Program. After completing her Certification in Image Consulting she took her knowledge of fashion, communication & shopping and started NEC Fashion and Image consulting in 2007.

The goal of NEC Fashion & Image Consulting is to improve a persons way of life through showing their best image. We help people and business do this in three ways.

1. Teaching individuals and group about fashion through personal styling, workshops and fashion articles

2. Consulting fashion professional in having a better image to increase their business

3. Working with designers to present the best fashion shows possible

N.E.C. image and styling clients included lawyers, actors, fashion designers and local politicians. But, the labor of love is the young adult groups in the inner city. Teaching them to dress for success and interviewing skills is our way of giving back to the community.

N.E.C. fashion workshops are done for retail stores, private companies and even in clients homes. We have styled photo shoots, assist on editorials for Glamour magazine and conceptualize fashion shows for designers all over NYC.

Our motto: “When a person looks their best they do their best. I see how fashion builds confidence and with confidents anything becomes possible.”
