Nicole Katherine’s original dresses and separates all embody her stylistic evolution toward more classic vintage silhouettes yet each piece retains her distinct and sassy mark, from the stunning and sophisticated gray suit dress ‘Elizabeth’ and the retro flamenco-style, circle-skirted ‘Bella Muerta’ dress with matching bolero, to the nautical ‘Armada Belle’ blouse with matching side-button pants, the ‘Lauren’ pencil skirt in gray (with or without contrast pocket flaps) and the classic 1940’s ‘Lindy Blouse’ (available in fabrics from solid rust to plaid).

Fashion-conscious from a young age, while growing up in Montana Nicole was appalled by the apparel available in stores. Dismayed that the rockabilly and punk styles she loved were nowhere to be found, she enlisted her grandmother to teach her to sew and by age 13 was regularly adapting dress patterns and tweaking thrift store finds to fabricate her own custom wardrobe.

A former psychology writer, Nicole Katherine became truly enthusiastic about original clothes design after creating her costumes for Irish Dance competitions.

She learned advanced sewing and pattern drafting during a short stint at the Art Institute of Seattle then interned under Annamarie Von Foley of Revamp Vintage and is currently finishing a degree at the Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing in Los Angeles.
