Nikki started Dark Knits Boutique in 2006 to give life to her passion for all things creative and her belief that everyone should be able to have a spectacular handmade quality piece in their wardrobe. Each piece Nikki makes, from corset to costume to top hat, is custom, unique to both her vision and that of the client’s demands, and is of heirloom quality. Dark Knits Boutique is also founded on Nikki’s commitment to beauty in all shapes and sizes. In April of 2013 Nikki released a photo book titled ‘Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful’ to further speak to this commitment. Dark Knits is where the macabre, the inclusive, the creative, and the well-tailored fuse together into wearable art.
