Kilkenny native Nicki Hoyne started her career in brands like Diageo, Nintendo, Marc Jacobs & Balenciaga in Dublin, London and Australia. She founded award winning online accessories store, My Shining Armour in 2014. Nicki combined her love of fashion, business and tech to create the Irish success story. With My Shining Armour Nicki learned where products came from and their effects on our planet. She began researching how she could create more meaningful fashion accessories that were still fun and beautiful but most importantly had a conscience.
Always a fan of fun, statement accessories. Nicki found that sustainable, conscious brands were muted and minimal. She has now created her own eponymous collection to bring you fun, accessible luxury designs with a conscience. It celebrates individuality, vibrancy and a passion for well-made slow fashion products.
The Nicki Hoyne Collection is handmade in Spain by master craftsmen. All materials are sourced within Europe as close as possible to the factory. She is working to become a fully sustainable brand ensuring all suppliers and their processes are as sustainable as possible.
Nicki Hoyne also created and hosts, the Hero Podcast where she chats to her guests about life, career, entrepreneurship and everything in between. She was invited to speak at Tedx, where she discusses the thought-provoking question Why are people afraid to talk about death? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-ah09HPIHo
