CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF? 

My name is Kiki, but my real name is Kristin. I got the nickname “Kiki Wongo” from my high school computer teacher, which stuck throughout my career as a musician. I’m an internationally toured musician who shared the stage with acts like Taylor Swift, Usher, Bret Michaels, The Misfits, and more. Currently, I love traveling the world with my bestie, Kaila Yu, and we are both founders of the Travel/Beauty/lifestyle blog NylonPink.tv.

WHAT ARE YOUR ASPIRATIONS?

Ultimately, I would like to achieve world domination. Haha, half kidding. I want to travel the world and share stories of culture and beauty from across the globe to our viewers. 

WHO ARE YOUR MUSIC AND FASHION INSPIRATIONS?

I listened to a lot of death metal when I was in high school. I was definitely inspired by a lot of goth and heavy music initially. However, throughout the years, I’ve learned to love pop music, KPOP, and electronic music along the way. I definitely have a darker edge when it comes to style inspiration, but also have a feminine side, which is derived from my travels playing music. 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

My personal style is like a chameleon. I’ve had so many influences throughout the years that I couldn’t categorize it under a particular umbrella. I love edgy, artsy and street styles during the day, but I also love feminine and pretty outfits for the night. Also, I’m currently obsessed with the color yellow.

AS A KOLLECTIN STYLE STAR, HOW HAVE YOU BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN USING KOLLECTIN TO SHOW YOUR PERSONAL STYLE AND INFLUENCE OTHERS? WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT KOLLECTIN?

I can’t describe to you enough how much Kollectin has changed the way I see style. My style is still changing here and there, but the biggest evolution was when I discovered your brand. I can really get the most creative inspiration basing my outfits with your bold pieces. I’ve found pieces in my Kollectin boxes that I would have never worn before, but found them to be astonishing and style-defining. I’m obsessed and will for sure be a long time customer of Kollectin.

YOU HAVE SUCH GREAT STYLE! WHAT JEWELRY TRENDS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR THE FALL?

I am obsessed with big bold pieces. Things that pop and become a stand-alone statement. I also love everything gold.

WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO PIECE OF KOLLECTIN JEWELRY?

By far, my favorite piece of all time are the huge pearl drop earrings. They went well with EVERYTHING I wore and got so many compliments on them!

YOUR PICTURES ON KOLLECTIN ARE STUNNING. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS ON HOW TO GET THE PERFECT PICTURE?

The number one thing is to be yourself. Your authenticity is something people are wired to read a mile away. Don’t try to force anything that you wouldn’t do. Also, the rule of thirds. ;)

WE ARE SUCH A BIG FAN AND WANT TO SEE MORE OF YOU! WHAT CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING FROM YOU IN THE NEAR FUTURE?

Currently, Kaila and I spent the year traveling the world to so many exotic destinations. We’re in the process of some great new beginnings for next year, so stay tuned on our adventures at www.nylonpink.tv.
