Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Nigel realized his senior year at Hutchinson Central Technical High School that he wanted to pursue a career in fashion. Living more than 350 miles away from New York City, Nigel turned to the social media as a way to connect with fashion insiders. From asking Eva Chen questions via Tumblr to linking with bloggers on Twitter, Nigel used this as his avenue to get his foot in the door.
At 19 years old Nigel became a published fashion writer and at 20 years old, in the same year he attended his first Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. Since then, Nigel has attended and cover NYFW since 2012, attending high profile shows like Altuzarra, Creatures of the Wind, Tibi, Narciso Rodriguez, Delpozo and more.
HighSnobiety's featured Nigel in their round-up of best sneakers worn during NYFW for the Fall/Winter 2015 womenswear collections and during the NYFW: Men's Spring 2016 show. Complex Magazine has also featured in him for best sneakers spotted during the men's shows as well.
Currently, at 24 years old, Nigel Isaiah is a budding Freelance Style & Market Editor, Creative/Digital Consultant and Writer based in New York City.
