Nicole has earned 250K+ Instagram followers posting sandals crafted from Capri Sun, Haribo gummy bear bags, even a vest made from a ping pong paddle holster. The designer’s skyrocketing success inspired a 2019 self-titled coffee table book of her work, with her upcycled footwear making her a leading name in sustainable fashion.
