Nicole Remeny, a native of Los Angeles, comes from a long lineage of fashion. Her Grandfather, Zoltan Remeny was in born in Hungary and worked in a shoe factory until eventually emigrating to Los Angeles with his wife Eva and son John (Nicole’s father). There he started his own Leather company, and soon John joined the business. Growing up around leather and design, Nicole always knew this would be the path she would take.
Nicole worked in fashion all her life, from retail, to eventually joining the family leather business in 2002 as an assistant designer. After a couple years, she worked her way up to head designer of both men’s and women’s. This was where her comforts lay.
As much as Nicole loved working in the family business, she always dreamed of starting and designing her own clothing line. Nicole has always loved fashion and being ahead of the trends. Simplicity and styling have always been the staples of her fashion signature. With these ideas in mind, she wanted to start by creating a women’s leather line, which would focus on the quality of the leather and superb fit.
In 2009, Nicole did just that and created 1020 by Nicole. Nicole handpicks each skin with luxury and quality in mind. The inspiration behind the designs is a modern twist on classic silhouettes. The focus is on the simplicity of the styles, targeting the quality of the leather and great fit. The styles of 1020 by Nicole are classics, never to go out of style. Nicole wanted to make sure that with each piece, comes a lifetime of wear.
1020 by Nicole is manufactured in Los Angeles, something that is very important to Nicole. New designs and items are being incorporated into the line, such as hand knit scarves and eco-friendly top to go under the jackets. 1020 by Nicole will always be a fashionable, smart, refined clothing line.
