Founder of Fashion Label, SATURDAY
BA(Hons) Fashion, Class of 2003
Regarded as one of the first quintessentially Singaporean designers to pioneer new grounds in the Singapore fashion scene, Nic has always been credited for his meticulous attention to geometrically quirky details in his understated designs.
In 2001, Nic bagged the Atelier East Design Excellence Award for Fashion Design and emerged winner of the Mercedes Benz Asia Fashion Award (Singapore) in 2004 with his first women’s wear collection. These achievements propelled the launch of his first fashion label, Nicholas in 2005. The widely recognised label represents Nic’s unique aesthetics and impeccable workmanship.
In 2009 and 2012, Nic spearheaded SATURDAY and CRUISE that rose to regional fame with its new take on fashion basics. Apart from his design work, Nic is often invited by local art schools to conduct lectures and to serve as an external examiner and judge for school graduations as well as a mentor for up and coming Singapore designers.
