Owning her own successful company by the age of 20, Nicole also lends her entrepreneurial skills and business knowledge to brands and businesses, from established global corporations to local technology start-ups. She was recently on the judging panel for the 2015 Australian Fashion Film Awards, the 2014 Australian BT Emerging Fashion Designer Award, as well as the 2014 Calvin Klein Accessories International Design School Project Award.
In 2012, Nicole made history when she became the first digital influencer to walk the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. A year later in 2013, she became the first digital influencer in the world to sign with IMG’s Talent Division, the largest talent management agency in the world which sees her profiled next to household names such as Miranda Kerr and Taylor Swift. In 2015, she landed one of her most prestigious roles yet as the only digital influencer to sign as a Net-a-Porter.com Ambassador and founding member of their Style Council.
Nicole is passionate about philanthropy and is currently the Global Ambassador for Donate Planet – a not-for-profit foundation, bringing charities together in one place so it’s easy and safe for us all to donate. She has also worked with The Cancer Institute and Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation by starring in their campaigns and harnessing the power of her social media to help raise awareness and funds. She continues to support charity initiatives and hopes to inspire others to do the same.
