Niko Liakaris is our #FF this week! He is also one of my closest friends and has been since we first met. And how that happened is a good story, but you’ll have to hear it from Niko because he tells it better than I do…and if you live in NYC and go out at night you either already know Niko or will probably meet him. Because he’s not “the guy who knows everyone” but the person who is so comfortable in their own skin that they have a natural warmth and crazy charisma that attracts a complete mix of people, and when he meets someone new he immediately welcomes them in and introduces them to others and the circle just grows. An original kid from Queens he’s equally comfortable with the mavens at Moschino as he is with the rock-and-rollers on the lower east side and the older residents who still actually live at the Gramercy Park Hotel and have since it was an apartment building.
He’ll be writing again for StyleDefined NYC during fashion week which thrills me to no end! And if you want to find him he’s also at the Moschino Boutique in the meatpacking district and Tuesday and Thursday evenings holding court during Brian Newman’s set at the Rose Bar. Oh, and if you sadly aren’t in NYC then you can always follow him on twitter or instagram -because trust me, we all need a little Niko in our life.
