Born and raised on Sydney's Northern Beaches, Nicole was born into a creative household. She grew up surrounded by the Art of her Oma and Opa, plus the creativity of her Mother.
Combined with a Degree in Business from UTS and a Diploma of Fashion Design from Ultimo TAFE, 2010 saw the beginning of Nicole’s career in fashion.
In her final year at UTS, Nicole wrote her thesis on fairtrade fashion, inspired by her extensive travel throughout Asia and witnessing first hand the skewed reality of the fashion industry. With this knowledge, Nicole threw herself into the fast fashion circuit to further her understanding, working for a wholesaler for brands including Just Jeans, Katies, Dotti, Big W and Crossroads.
Witnessing fast fashion at it’s absolute best, Bennett was compelled to launch her fashion label, ENOUGH by Nicole Bennett, in 2012. It was her vision to be set apart and pioneer a new movement and encourage a new reality.
2015 saw the favoured Australian womenswear label, Enough By Nicole Bennett, debut a renewed fashion focus, rebranding to eponymous name, NICOLE BENNETT.
The rebrand harnessed new beginnings, encompassing all that was celebrated about the brand imbued with a refined contemporary vision.
“My vision is to create a modern, compelling brand, with truly impeccable clothing for the discerning customer.
All our threads are made-to-order in our Sydney studio. This allows us to reduce waste and focus on craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
