A native Californian, Nicole was born and raised in Los Angeles surrounded by entertainers, costumes, and designers. Needless to say, Nicole developed an appreciation for fashion at an early age—with a deep fascination for creating her own look. “Fashion gives you the ability to express yourself, your mood; it’s a creative outlet in many ways.” This is one of the primary reasons the House of Harlow 1960 collection was born.
Nicole’s love and influence of costume dressing are apparent in each collection, whether incorporated in a print or manifested through a unique addition to a fabric or style. She says, “I’ve always loved the possibility of being able to transform yourself through the way of dress”—and it translates into the everyday dressing that has become the foundation and essence of the House of Harlow 1960 identity.
House of Harlow 1960 launched in 2009, with Spring 2010 as its debut season. Nicole has been the creative force behind the brand since day one, immersing herself in every step of the brand's creative and strategic decision-making process.
House of Harlow 1960 has evolved into offering full-fledged collections, including ready-to-wear, jewelry, eyewear, footwear, and handbags. Since its inception, the brand has received rave reviews and a tremendous celebrity following.
House of Harlow 1960 is available globally at high-end department and specialty stores, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Selfridges, as well as HouseofHarlow1960.com.
