1. What is your full name and its origin?
My name is Nicholas Lampart. The name Nicholas is of Greek origin, meaning “victory of the people.” Due to the renown of Saint Nicholas, the name is popular all over the world.
2. Where were you born and in which city did you grow up?
I was born in Kingston, Jamaica. I am from a small place in Clarendon called May Pen. I spent the first 9 years of my childhood in Jamaica until I came to the UK with my little sister in March 2002. The first place I lived in the UK was North London, Tottenham.
3. What were the influences or defining events of your childhood?
From a young age, I have always loved sports, especially football. That was my first dream—to be a professional footballer and play for Manchester United. I have always loved clothes from a young age due to my father being someone who sold clothes and accessories. So, I have always been around fashion. The defining events of my childhood were definitely my mother leaving Jamaica and getting the opportunity to come to England. It was a difficult time for me as a child due to being a mummy’s boy. That was a difficult period being without my mother for over a year or so. Her setting herself up to be able to send for my sister and me to come to the UK was definitely life-changing.
4. How did you develop your passions and interests?
I was invited to a fashion show by a friend, and during the show, I started developing a passion for the runway. I was inspired. Being someone who grew up quite shy, it was a very different feeling, but I sat there while enjoying the show thinking to myself, “I can do that. I would love to do that.” Also, I have two friends who have pushed me to believe in myself and get myself out there. I feel the passion developed more on my journey as I started falling in love with what I was doing.
5. What were your first jobs or early professional experiences?
My first jobs were really fun. My first specific job was a music video. It felt good actually doing something that I have natural gifts for. Also, being someone who has grown from being shy to being someone who is now very confident, I felt like it suited me. I have learned so much from my first experiences. I feel it has definitely made me a better model. It has been so much fun learning more as I do a job that I don’t really class as “work” because I enjoy what I do.
