In the 1990’s, Nikki was the designer and proprietor of ‘ecobaby’ an environmentally friendly babies and children’s clothing business in her native hometown Sydney, Australia. A love affair with the ocean led Nikki to pursue a career in marine biology and her Bachelor of Science degree and a scholarship opportunity brought Nikki to US shores. Working in coral reef conservation, Nikki juggled the dichotomy between science and fashion; ultimately her creativity lured her back to the fashion world.

Nikki is now based in Delray Beach, Florida. Since creating her 'nikki poulos' label in 2008, she has built up a loyal following with her clientele and in the press. The collections have been featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Elle, Lucky and Fitness magazines, and the European version of the hit show Next Top Model. The line is available across the US, and can be found across Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the UK.

Nikki's collections reflect her love of vintage inspired styles, sassy prints and bold colors.  A fascination with old Hollywood glamour and the icons of fashion, film and art, coupled with her love of the great outdoors, inspires and influences her styling to create a line that represents the epitome of modern boho chic.

Nikki believes firmly in supporting her local economy, therefore her nikki poulos and nikki poulos swim collections are proudly produced in the US.

Nikki appeared as a designer on NBC's prime time show Fashion Star (Season One). Her graphic print pieces were sold at H&M, Macys, and SAKS, where they sold out almost instantly every time they hit the stores. During her time on the show, she became known for her no-nonsense approach coupled with her irreverent humor. Nikki's motto is "if you can't get laid in my stuff, then what's the point?"  

In 2013, Nikki launched her highly anticipated and (almost) sold out 'nikki by nikki poulos' collection on HSN (Home Shopping Network) - the next LIVE show will be February 26-27, 2014 - to see the collection or watch live shows http://www.hsn.com/shop/nikki-by-nikki-poulos/10881
