Viva Magazine interviewed Nigel on wine, fashion and social media:
“Nigel Barker is having a moment with New Zealand right now. The photographer, furniture designer and former America’s Next Top Modeljudge has just become the new face of Kiwi wine brand Invivo Wines, taking his love of New Zealand and his favourite home-grown tipple to the US market.
“I love good wine and ever since I first tasted Invivo I was hooked,” says Nigel who sparked up a friendship with co-founders, Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron. Tim and Rob then spent the next five years sending their wine to Nigel for his personal consumption — some of which was halted by Customs.
“I am looking forward to introducing the US to Invivo as long as I manage to save a few cases for me — I can’t go back to smuggling it into the country again,” says Nigel, who’ll feature in campaigns to help Invivo stand out in the US market.”
