Nichole de Carle is a British bodywear designer based in London. Having worked for fashion powerhouses Alexander McQueen, Donna Karan and Pleasure State, she was inspired to establish her eponymous label, Nichole de Carle London in 2009, modernising couture design within the intimates sector.
Originally a bespoke service, she quickly built up an impressive list of A-list celebrities, including Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Rita Ora, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole.
With a unique insight into the luxury bodywear industry, London Contour Experts was a natural progression, providing a consultancy service to those within the lingerie, swimwear and activewear markets.
Established in London in 2015, the firm also manages the technical and production element of its client’s product design, so that they can focus on running their business.
Its experienced technical team creates high quality garments from a client’s sketch into a finished product.
“Being London based, we give our clients the unique opportunity to work alongside their design teams locally. This enables them to utilise a sampling facility that understands their global marketplace and can bring their creative vision to life with the precision, control and timeliness they may struggle with elsewhere,” said Nichole.
Founder Nichole is often called upon as a figurehead in the industry, advising on topics such as luxury manufacturing and female entrepreneurship, alongside teaching lingerie and swimwear design at London College of Fashion.
In 2017, she was shortlisted for a Forward Ladies National Award and Leadership Trust Award for her work in inspiring the next generation of designers and business owners within her industry.
