We had the good fortune of connecting with Nika Watts and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nika, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important part about the success of Black6Hearts Clothing comes from me keeping things fresh and new. I like to believe I bring something to the fashion industry that’s unique, fun and relatable. I strive to outdo the last collection. My customers can count on one of a kind pieces (customs orders), comfortable, brightly colored fabrics with a flavor that only Black6Hearts Clothing can bring..

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The story behind Black6Hearts Clothing surprisingly comes from a place of darkness. Without getting to deep into the why’s and how’s, birthing this brand was my way out of depression, my outlet from pain, my sanctuary from being physically abused. Each piece is created with genuine love to showcase brighter days.. It’s been a challenge and continues to be. Being a woman in the fashion industry, I get a lot of resistance. I never let obstacles stand in my way however, it’s most definitely more difficult to get the recognition you deserve. I’ve learned in this business to always come prepared with my own team. Models, hair, make up, photography, videographer etc.
I want the world to know that Black6Hearts Clothing stands for SERIOUSNESS,STRENGTH,POWER,AUTHORITY,LOVE and LOYALTY.. (6)

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my best friend came for a week long.visit, we’d honestly partake in some adventures out of town somewhere. The type of friendships I have are spontaneous, on the go spur of the moment. Nothing is ever planned, we just get up and go.. lol

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Yes, I’d like to shoutout Demetrius Burks A.K.A. MTG., This is a person who pushed and encouraged me to follow my heart and dreams of creating a brand that would impact the world.. Hes so many things to me and I’ll love you ALWAYS!!!
