Frequently Asked Questions
ON OUR BACKGROUND
Q: What is the background of NIKICIO?
A: On May 2007, a then 22-year-old Nina Nikicio came back home to Indonesia. She always believe that local products should be able to compete with international ready to wear labels. There were no local ready to wear in sight back then, all designers are ventured in couture or wedding gowns. She challenged the common norm by creating a ready to wear label with an online based store, experting in free marketing by using social media, and casting her friends as models. She never expected to lead a company, but a passion for great design and frustration with the lack of innovation in the local scene led her to build NIKICIO.
