Pilger was launched in the fall of 2009 by Designer Beth Pilger. Beth Pilger was born and raised on the east coast of the United States. An avid collector of vintage clothing and knitwear ultimately led her to an exploration in fiber and felting, producing pieces with contrasting materials and unique elements. She studied fashion design at Parsons, the New School for Design in New York. Throughout her career as a fashion and costume designer, Beth has exhibited widely in the USA, with her designs gracing glamorous red carpet movie premieres and has also been featured on international music stages. Her unique design work has also been seen on TV as well as in numerous major southeastern publications. After a two year hiatus, Pilger is relaunching with a womenswear collection comprised of locally sourced wool and mohair. Each piece is delicately handcrafted and made to perfection. www.PilgerDesigns.com

Stephanie Nickolich, Owner and Operator of Accessory Fanatic and fresh to the Miami market from the great state of New York City. Nickolich catches us up to speed during a fun interview concerning her new fashion business venture.
What inspired you to start Accessory Fanatic?
Well…it was sort of a life changing moment. Last June I left my corporate job in the wholesale home accessory, home furnishing business. It wasn’t taking me the places that I hope to go in life. I had done some research about starting a pop up shop through Facebook featuring live events, it was something that was trending in the market. Not only that but I literally am an “Accessory Fanatic” so this made a lot of sense. I was doing some consulting work on the side and putting the pieces of Accessory Fanatic together. In January I lost my father, my biggest supporter and best friend. Weirdly enough he had given my mother a check just days before his passing to help me start my business. My business license that was filed weeks before that became official the day of his death. It was my sign to move forward and here I am.
Well why not? Haha. I was living in Dallas, Texas when I was working corporately. I had moved back to Texas from south Florida nearly 4 years ago for my job. Miami has a small business community that welcomes entrepreneurs and businesses such as Accessory Fanatic to succeed. Dallas was a bit different. I needed to be in a place that I could link up with fashion events and social happenings with young professionals that fit my demographics.
How do you encourage or inspire others?
I’m a go-getter, take chances, all in type of girl! I shine in social environments and I have the gift of making people feel comfortable in different situations. I believe that I can set the standards for other young women to take a chance and go for their dreams. After all….I’m living mine!
What do you like the most about fashion? In fashion it’s all about taking chances. Don’t follow the leader, be the leader! I wear what represents my style and what I feel comfortable in and I obviously hope that the majority of the world feels the same way! Haha
If you had to pick one accessory to wear the rest of your life what would it be?
Hmmm…that’s a really tough one. Wow. Must I only pick one? I’m a fanatic you know! That equals many!
Who is your style icon?
I adore Betsey Johnson because her fun, funky, quirky personality is reflected in her collections and she doesn’t play by the “rules”. She definitely inspires me to continue to be me! I also dig Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe choices on most occasions, except when she wore that dress that looked like it was made from a 1970’s sofa.
How do you define “personal style”?
Hmmm….the look for less. I love taking runway inspired fashion trends and translating them into affordable jewels in my closet. I’ve got to say I’m a bit fashion obsessed, if I could I would never wear anything more than once!
Be sure to check out all of the fashionable goodies on Accessory Fanatic! Also follow them on Twitter, Instagram, Pintreast and Facebook for live auctions every Tuesday and Thursday starting at 7PM CST/8PM EST
