Interview at Australian Fashion Week
Her designs, often characterized by understated glamour, luxurious fabrics and unique exclusive prints, have introduced ease and streamlined modernity into Australian dressing.
nicolangëla focuses on unique, unstructured occasion wear. The majority of nicolangëla's dresses and gowns mould to fit the body, by the clever use of belts and ties.
Sydney born, Nicole relocated to Melbourne in 2000 to open the nicolangëla boutique and design studio in Prahran.
With a thirst for retail, in 2004 Nicole opened her flagship boutique in Melbourne's GPO building in the cities centre. Via the boutique the brand gains valuable retail experience and is constantly faced with the daily requirements of retail and succeeds.
10 years on, nicolangëla distributes the label throughout the country to independent boutiques and department store MYER.
"It has been an incredible journey, and I love every minute of it. Seeing women in my designs is such a buzz and so incredibly rewarding to know that my creations have made them feel special. For people to connect with your creativity is a gift"
The nicolangëla collection is launched seasonally on the runway of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in Sydney, L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival and Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.
