Nichole de Carle London is an exclusive brand of luxury lingerie and swimwear, defined by its rich tastes, innovative stylistic signature and fine craftsmanship. Quintessentially British, the designer Nichole de Carle uses her rich cultural heritage to define the values of quality and skill of her ancestors. The de Carle Huguenots are of Royal decent and were known as exceptional artisans, craftsmen and professionals of high societal positions. Francois de Carle, the bloodline of Nichole, fled to England from persecution in France in 1572. Inspired by her Huguenot heritage, the designer’s passion for the craft of contour design and fit evokes beauty, wit and sophistication in every one of her creations. Nichole de Carle graduated from the world-renowned Contour Design course at De Montfort University with First Class Honours, having developed rare skills required for the creation of couture lingerie, swimwear, corsetry and bridal wear. These skills later secured her positions at the renowned fashion houses such as Alexander McQueen, Donna Karan and Pleasure State, where she further developed her unique craft and vision. It was Nichole’s experience at the McQueen’s fashion house which has ultimately motivated her to amalgamate couture design with the intimates sector under her own name.
“Design is where science and art break even. It has always been paramount to create my own visual style, let it be unique to myself and yet identifiable for others.” – Nichole de Carle
The eponymous British label Nichole de Carle London started life in 2009, originally creating handcrafted, bespoke lingerie for private clients worldwide.
