a bit about nico

he is the ceo, founder, and designer of his urban/street wear brand, KAUS.
his very first design of monkey wearing the crown of thorns is a depiction of his own struggle to understand the teachings of christianity and science as he started to have questions about what he’s been taught in christian school for 11 years (pre school – 8th grade). nico is devoted christian and is an aspiring architect and a bright young entrepreneur.

    Love the image; it’s beautiful, and for me ties the natural world with the concept of faith. Your story of collaboration is wonderful, Mimi. May nico have continued success with his line, KAUS, and may you have many more collaborations.
