BILLINGS – model magazine, lipstick, prestige. These are just a few of Billings’ fashion magazines her models have been featured in, but she has even bigger news as she prepares to head to London for her fashion week.
Nicole Williams said, “It’s a big thing. It’s nerve-wracking to travel abroad and do things that a lot of people can’t do.” It’s amazing to be one,” said Boggio.
Nicole graduated from Billings West High School in 2019 and has become an international runway model, posing from Los Angeles to New York and to London later this month.
“She did acting and modeling classes with one of America’s Next Top Models, Kiara Bellen in Los Angeles,” said her mother, Denise Bozzio. “And when we were done, Nicole and a few others were picked to go to LA for Fashion Week.”
That was three years ago, but in retrospect, Nicole has quite the story of how it all began.
“She started modeling at the age of one,” said Denise. “We did a baby pageant and everyone thought I was being silly, but I just wanted to put it in her baby book.
Rewinding further, it was quite a milestone.
“Nicole was born quite urgently and was actually almost dying,” her mother said. They said no. They sent her home at 3 pounds, 14 ounces.”
She faced another major setback brought up with severe anonymous bullying and even death threats in her locker. However, she continues to push forward and wants others to do the same.
“I would like to say to everyone who has been in my position with bullying, always keep your mindset about what you want to do and don’t let anyone dull your brilliance.
And that’s what she does from runway to runway.
“I don’t think this will happen, but I hope it will,” Dennis said.
She will be one of only six petite models the Fashion Life Tour will bring to London.
“I know I get one-of-a-kind dresses made just for me,” Nicole said. “That’s pretty cool. That’s exciting.”
