Nicole Melnicky is an artist and fashion designer based out of Toronto, ON. She received her BFA in Fine Art from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is currently an MFA graduate student in Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design at Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She completed internships with fashion designers Alice & Olivia by Stacey Bendet, and Tanya Taylor based in New York City. She was hosted as an artist-in-residence at Vermont Studio Center, and will be designer-in-residence at Otis College of Art and Design.

Nicole's fashion designs are feminine, playful and colorful, as she designs for queer womenswear customer that is daring, empowered, and inspired. Through her garments and textiles, Nicole explores the mixed-methodologies of queer feminism, queer time and place, relocations, queer suburban imaginaries, and queer utopia.
