Firmly established in the digital space, Australian-born Influencer and Entrepreneur Nicole Warne achieved another career milestone as she joins a luxury watchmaker and jeweller Piaget, as a Friend of the Brand, starting from the end of June 2019.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Piaget, a respected and renowned leader in the luxury space, as Friend of the Brand. Piaget’s core values in design, craftsmanship, and art resonate with me and my style. I am excited to embark on the next chapter; creating and sharing alongside a brand I love,” says Warne. Considered as one of the leading digital influencers with over 2.3 million followers on Instagram, she has successfully established e-commerce and digital business by the age of 20.
“We are very pleased that Nicole is joining the Piaget Society. Her creativity and audacious style reflect Piaget’s core values. We are very much looking forward to working hand in hand with Nicole on bringing the spirit of Piaget to the digital world!” explains Chabi Nouri, CEO of Piaget.
Together with the announcement, Piaget also shared the latest jewellery collection called the Sunlight collection.
From Online to Offline Businesswoman
Nicole has been recognized in the FORBES ’30 Under 30′ and Business of Fashion’s ‘#BoF500: The People Shaping the Global Industry’ (2015, 2016, 2017). As a respected member of the global fashion community, Nicole was a guest judge for the inaugural Forbes ’30 Under 30′ list (2019) and the Woolmark Prize (2017). She has also been the official presenter for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia twice, which was live-streamed globally, and made several television appearances, including Asia’s Next Top Model where she acted as a mentor and guest judge.
Not only in fashion, but she is also active in the philanthropy world, as she is an Ambassador for Adopt Change, a charity that works to change legislation in Australia around adoption so that more children can find a permanent home, a cause that is close to her heart as she is adopted herself.
In Tokyo, she opened her e-bay store and blog, Gary Pepper Vintage, which sold vintage clothing and accessories and would be the stepping stones for her career trajectory. Nicole hopes the fashion industry, and all industries can find more ways to support a more sustainable and ethical approach to their practices and help reduce their carbon footprint.
