“Fashion Tool For Change is very exciting for us because people have a perception that fashion is self-indulging yet one can underestimate what fashion can really do.  For example, take who we’re collaborating with this Women’s Month, which is Dress For Success. This organisation takes clothes that hopefully people are going to donate to our store in Hyde Park for the whole month of August and donate it to underprivileged women. 

"They’re going to use the clothing to give women a step up in life. For example, when they are going for job interviews or they’ve gotten a new job and they haven’t got the right outfit to wear, they’re going to be able to clothe these women. If you feel confident in what you’re wearing, you automatically become more successful which does a lot for your self-esteem," says Breger.

This season Nicci is all about  sustainability and is shaped by Mother Nature, with the colour palette inspired  by the natural hues and tones of the ocean, forests, sunsets and flowers. 

Feminine florals and frills and ruffles, reminiscent of the ebb and flow of the  ocean, are in abundance, with denim as a wardrobe staple. Animal print has  stamped its paw of approval on an array of interesting colour combinations,  adding a bold statement to your basics and Spring/Summer 2019 is all about  standing out.
