I began this business over 12 years ago and have helped thousands of brands to launch their fashion products into the world using our proven, step-by-step blueprint.
I focus on teaching fashion business mindset and launch strategy to brand owners who have entrepreneurial dreams and the determination to bring them to life.
A professional encourager, I believe that the only way to be truly successful is to build a business around the life you want to live.

Joining StartUp Fashion was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It took me from near clueless to a world of knowledge. It’s truly one of the most supportive communities I’ve been in. And Nicole is just the best! Any new designer would benefit from joining this wonderful community.
StartUp FASHION is a true gem. It really helped me to navigate this uneasy process. I highly recommend StUF to anyone who thinks it’s impossible to launch a fashion brand. Because with Nicole’s help, it’s possible!
