Nicole Akong is a visionary fashion designer and maker and was a finalist on the 2020 series of the BBC's Great British Sewing Bee. She first came to prominence in 2010 through her iconic jewellery collections, which were bought by some of the world's most renowned retailers, featured regularly in major fashion magazines, and famously worn by one of the world's biggest fashion icons, Amal Clooney. Today, having re-connected with her childhood love of sewing, her creations now combine her flair for embellishment with her love of clothing and accessories. Nicole's mission is to support others on their journey from Consumers to Creators, so that they are empowered to make more and buy less. She has created a new global learning and broadcasting media platform, I CAN MAKE IT, where she hosts a series of online courses, workshops and videos, to pass on all the skills and knowledge gained over her 10 prolific years as a designer and maker in the fashion business.
