Nikia icon

Nikia Jefferson is the Founder and Editor of ChiTown Fashionista and has always had an affinity for shoes and shopping, in general. Spending several months living and working in London – which enabled her to frequent the local markets and travel to Italy and France – heightened her love for fashion. During this time, she was introduced to several local designers and realized they needed a platform to gain exposure. Upon her return to Chicago, Nikia created ChiTown Fashionista.

In addition to addressing fashion trends and her latest obsessions, Nikia promotes the remarkable, yet underexposed, local shops and designers she encounters in Chicago and beyond. Deemed as ‘the enabler of fashion consumption’, Nikia works to captivate the hearts of fellow shopaholics by featuring discounted designer items and the unique treasures found during her shopping adventures and trips to the local markets. These features make ChiTown Fashionista the central online destination for Chicago residents and visitors who seek to combine their love of fashion with a desire to experience and embrace local talent and one of a kind designs.

It was inevitable that Rita would one day discover the world of beauty products; from skin care, to nail polish and of course, makeup. Once Rita realized her adoration, it quickly took on a force that would continue to flourish as time went on. Rita chose YouTube as a platform to share her interests as well as develop her knowledge and skill level. Over time, Rita has become a contributing member of the online beauty community in all forms in hopes to share her knowledge and passion of all things beauty.
