Nina Filippa Zandnia
In 2016, I’ve been working on developing an app for cost-effectively and conveniently booking hotels around the world, it’s called prettyclose.com and will go live this year. I also signed with Galleries Lafayette to have my fashion line, Nina Zandnia, in their stores and I’ve been working with ITP on a TV show for OK! Middle East which covers red-carpet fashion moments and celebrities.
I work in TV, production and fashion and I’m an entrepreneur. Ten years ago I created a reality TV show format that no one believed in. It featured multiple dogs and their owners sharing a house with audiences voting on a weekly basis for their favourite pet to go through to the next round. I never gave up and Top Dog was ultimately produced in Sweden and sold to 36 countries, with the winning dogs going on to win commercial contracts for TV and film work.
The best advice I’ve ever received came from my father: “Respect everyone no matter who they are, where they’re from, or what they do. Always be humble, kind and giving, and always be a graceful lady.”
I have a tiara that belonged to my great-grandmother, it’s my most treasured procession, and I will be wearing it on the day I get married.
