Our mission at Nicole Scott is to provide a transparent lens through the world of fashion. We strive to be ethical, unconventional, and inclusive in everything we do.
We pledge to be open and honest to our consumers, kind to the planet and our partners, all while standing on ethical production.
Inclusion is another mission of ours because high fashion is traditionally known for being “exclusive” but at Nicole Scott Inc.
We want everyone to feel equal, represented, and included.
Founded in 2021, by Nicole Alexis Scott, we launched our first collection in October of 2021, with the support of the AMPED Russell Tech Business Incubator (RTBI).
The RTBI is a non-profit organization based in Louisville, KY dedicated to the advancement of minority-owned businesses. The RTBI has been a significant resource in launching the success of our company.
Our debut collection was produced by hand, by Nicole herself.
In Spring of 2022 we partnered with another non-profit organization Sew Valley to produce our second collection locally in Cincinnati, OH.
We focus our sales online and in-person at our local pop-up events!
