Nicole Van Dyke is the coolest and most confidential house of fashion on the planet, sold in specialty stores around the world and here in her online e-shop.
Nicole is an American designer educated in Art History, French and German at the University of Michigan, and in fashion design at FIT in New York City, where she graduated with the award for ready-to-wear designer of the year. She also specialized in leather design, which sparked a passion for accessories and a harmony amongst the clothing.
She left NYC and her designer job at mega-brand Victoria ‘s Secret for Paris and the Frenchman she met in a bar in TriBeCa, and simultaneously launched her own collection : Nicole Van Dyke – American designed, French made.
The collection includes limited edition ready to wear and accessories created from vintage fabrics the designer collects in her travels, leathers from Italy, and handwoven fabrics created especially for the brand by her textile-designer mom, Barb Van Dyke (trained in Berlin and working from her studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan).
Nicole lives with her Frenchman and their two daughters in what she affectionately calls the ‘Brooklyn of Paris’, Boulogne.
