Nikkie Pennie

After 30 years in the beauty industry, during which she founded 5 successful brands, Marcia Kilgore is now running what she believes will be her most successful venture yet.

Love music and ever wonder what it would be like to be a professional DJ, handling the tunes at chic and sophisticated events all over  the world? Meet Nikki Pennie, one of the very few female professional DJs working in the male-dominated field. Specializing fashion and beauty parties, the flame-haired DJ shares with Linda how she broke through barriers to enter the field —from how she made the decision to transition from being a fashion stylist to being a full-time DJ just two weeks after  giving it a try on a whim…to how her former job as a stylist for the British cult brand, Issa actually provided her with some of the necessary skills…and how her almost incanny ability to “read a room” is what separates her from the rest.

Today Nikki DJs for people and brands all over the world and she is the official DJ for Christian Dior Beauty. A self-taught music producer, she is currently working on her first EP.
