After leaving school in Year 10 Nicole studied fashion at East Sydney tech for three years. On completion of her studies there was a major recession on. It was tough getting a job and the fashion industry was hard hit. Nicole worked for a few different manufacturers as a pattern maker and then worked in retail whilst making daywear for regular corporate clients.
When one of her regular clients got engaged, Nicole was asked “will you make my wedding gown” and so the love affair began with all things bridal. Nicole Michelle always knew she wanted to be in business for herself but needed to gain experience. Nicole continued to work through various areas of the Bridal Industry including retail, wholesale, design, importing and management also whilst making Bridal and Eveningwear for her private clients. Nicole Michelle Couture was born in June 1998 and the rest is history.
