Dani Nichole is an elite fashion designer who specializes in custom haute couture. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Dani Nichole has always had an eye for rich colors and bold prints. She moved to Nashville, Tennessee after graduating high school to attend the International Academy of Design, where she received her Associate’s degree.
After her first successful runway fashion show, she moved to New York City to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Upon her first year at FIT, she was called for an interview with Bad Boy Entertainment and landed her first internship with music mogul and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs’ stylist, Derek Roche. As an intern, Dani Nichole helped create countless looks for Diddy as well as Bad Boy group, Dirty Money. After months of interning and styling the group, she returned back to her first love—designing.
Dani Nichole quickly escalated from styling to designing and was later promoted to Sean John’s design team, where she worked for two years. In September 2012, she left Sean John to become an assistant designer for Tommy Hilfiger and Character License while still managing to keep her own brand buzzing. She has been featured on Ebony.com and in Amsterdam News where she was awarded a plaque for being named “ Designer On The Rise”.
