Coming off the release of his newest project titled “Gatsby” Cristo Noir, a musical artist that disrupts the music scene with his genre-bending sound. One of my favorite movies is The Great Gatsby, so I wanted to make a song that combined the classic voices of the movie with a modern vibe to it. The song is about Jay Gatsby wanting to live the most out of his life, and how the other characters in the movie made him feel like he wasn’t part of the club. He had money but he wasn’t born into a wealthy family. The music video is absolutely stunning. It combines the original movie with a modern electronic mix.

But for this young model, she came back to create her own swimwear designs – and hasn’t looked back since.

The collection includes poolside, sea-side, and day-to-night look summer-ready pieces. Made from local, recyclable materials, piece is figure-flattering, open back, and each piece is delicately handmade to ensure quality.

The ‘Tulum Collection’ was designed to make every girl look and feel resort-ready this summer.

“My goal was to make every girl feel like they were in Tulum even without them being in Tulum. As crazy as that sounds, I felt there was this FOMO for a lot of women who could not travel due to the pandemic. Since Tulum was becoming a popular vacay spot, I just wanted everyone to feel a part of the experience by wearing the pieces,” Nicole said.

Within a week of launching, the collection has blown up online with sales of the trendy tropical designs going through the roof. The brand has grown in popularity after some of the biggest influencers in Los Angeles posted wearing their pieces.
