Women’s Jr. USA Surf Champion Nikki Viesins has come together with the world’s youngest fashion designer Courtney Allegra to collaborate for the fashion line Eleven Degreez. This new friendship has given Allegra a surf-inspired plan to design a line focusing on swim, beachwear, and eventually wetsuits.
The pair met at Dukes Restaurant in Huntington Beach, where Courtney was celebrating her latest fashion line and Nikki had recently won the USA surf championship. “When I saw Courtney from the Today Show pull up in person at Dukes, I had to meet her,” Viesins recalls. “She is doing what no other woman is doing in fashion and I love her printed tops and wanted to get one for myself.”
Soon after their first meeting, Allegra’s vision of Eleven Degreez was created. She is currently working on an entire line of surfboards that she hopes will revolutionize how surfboards look. One of Allegra’s first designs was inspired from her signature leopard print pattern from her clothing line.
