From an early age Nichole showed signs of pursuing an entrepreneurial path, combining her love of the arts with a passion for globetrotting and meeting people. Having graduated from the world-renowned Contour Design Course at de Montfort University in England with a First Class Honors degree, Nichole had mastered rare skills in body contour design across lingerie, swimwear and corsetry.
Such expertise secured her positions at fashion powerhouses Alexander McQueen and Donna Karan New York, then later at Sydney based lingerie specialists, Pleasure State.
Nichole’s time with McQueen inspired her to pursue couture design within the intimates sector, founding her eponymous label, Nichole de Carle London in 2010. Originally a Bespoke service, she quickly built up an impressive client list of A-list performers and HNWIs.
Nichole’s forte is in the technical creation of innovative, fashion-forward intimates for the modern power woman. Her creativity also extends to driving the business through unique PR activities that inspire her followers.
She is often called upon as a figurehead within the British lingerie industry, advising on topics such as luxury manufacturing and female entrepreneurship, alongside teaching at the London College of Fashion.
“Design is where science and art break even. It has always been paramount to create my own visual style, let it be unique to myself and yet identifiable for others.” – Nichole de Carle
