Born and raised in Vancouver, Nicole received her BAA in Fashion Design from Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario. During an internship in London with Vivienne Westwood, Nicole learned the art of sculpting, draping and layering fabric. It was here that she began to realize that her talent for fashion design could also be used as a vehicle for positive social change. A mother and social entrepreneur, Nicole strives to make positive contributions to her community and environment through the products she creates and the people she connects with. She is fuelled by a desire to create clothes that make all women feel beautiful and unique.
Nicole seems to have managed to avoid taking on the stories and beliefs that limit many of us from being and doing what we most crave to do. I feel completely inspired after seeing the world through her eyes for an hour!
Nicole sews a little cotton label into every garment that says ‘I am love’. She says it helps her to remember that this is her true essence. “What if,” she says, “true essence is a pure place of spirit – we are the shells as vessels for spirit, and that we align as we walk this path?”
