MAKING the transition from law to fashion may seem like a big jump — a clashing of two worlds with little or nothing in common. But it's the personal choice Nadia John makes every day.
During the regular weekdays, John balances the dual roles of attorney and corporate secretary. But when the days give way to the muted shades of evening — that's when the magic happens — after hours— when John indulges in her creative side. Nowhere else is John's creativity better expressed than in her online boutique, Mermaid Designs, which offers swim, rave and masquerade fashion. Because of her keen eye for a certain aesthetic, everything she curates for her boutique, from lip gloss to swimwear, T-shirts to dresses and tutus, is unique and not likely to be found in other retail stores. Everything at Mermaid Designs is functional yet trendy and inherently sexy. Imagine finding swimwear and bodysuits that can also substitute for Monday wear and rave fashion with the addition of accessories and shorts, leggings or jeans.
