Born in Italy, Nicola studied architecture in Rome, then relocated to Australia, Sydney. Nicola Finetti is one of Australia’s most talented and leading fashion designers. Launching his eponymous womenswear label in 1995. The collection and optical eyewear range is stocked nationally in David Jones department stores and boutiques all around the world.

Nicola is constantly in the limelight; he continues to receive great reviews and editorial coverage in magazines such as Vogue Australia, ELLE, Marie Claire, Oyster, Harper’s Bazaar as well as British Instyle, Vogue and ELLE to name a few.

Having dressed celebrities such as Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Hawkins, Laura Dundovic, Mischa Barton and more, Nicola Finetti has established a devoted celebrity clientele.


Beauty has never been so diverse. The Nicola Finetti collection conveys non-conventional beauty and the application of complex structure upon minimal forms. Still maintaining a contemporary street edge, with prints and silhouettes giving a nod to traditional garments.

Nicola Finetti womenswear focuses on elegant wearable and supremely stylish dresses and separates for the modern women, with a counterbalance of fine tailoring and digital print.

While using luxurious European imported fabrics, cut and print are key for the collection, the pieces are exclusively designed in-house for the Australian lifestyle. Nicola Finetti is one of few designers that still design and manufacture everything locally.
