There’s a lot to love about Nicole Bridger. Her clothes are beautiful, functional and comfortable. She’s socially and environmentally conscious, choosing sustainable, ethically sourced materials. Her clothes are manufactured right here in Vancouver. Even her buttons are made of Tagua Nuts from palm trees rather than plastic, which provides an economic boost to the indigenous peoples of the Central and South American Rainforests. Nicole Bridger isn’t just making beautiful style pieces, she’s helping to build a better world. We were thrilled when we had to chance to chat with her for the VancouverMom.ca podcast.
Serious Style that Works for Moms
Nicole is also a Vancouver mom herself, and her motherhood informs much of what she does. For example, she creates clothing that can go in the washing machine, because moms need that kind of ease. Also, many of her pieces can be worn throughout pregnancy and beyond, giving you versatility and comfort without sacrificing style. Her flagship store on West 4th is a child-friendly space, so you can bring your kids with you while you’re out shopping.
Nicole is a native Vancouverite, but she has quite the fashion pedigree, having worked as an intern for fashion icon Vivienne Westwood. During the podcast we had the chance to ask what she loves about this city that we call home. We also discussed how she got into design in the first place, and asked about what’s coming up next for her. In talking to Nicole, you just know that this is one Vancouver mom who’s going places. She’s followed her dreams with amazing tenacity, and that’s a pretty inspiring thing.
