At A Wish Come True our coworkers and our customers feel like family. So we thought it was time for you to get to know our family.

Get to know Nicole! She’s a total Star Wars and Lord of the Rings nerd who loves tattoos but is still a sweet Jersey girl at heart.


What’s your job title? Describe what you do. 

I am a pattern maker. I work on all sorts of patterns whether it be for dance or guard; catalog to custom. I also design for ‘Wish’ in my free time. I had over 20 catalog styles in the 2017 book.

 

What’s the most fun part of your job/day? 

I love solving problems as odd as it sounds. I love the challenge of figuring out how to resolve quirky issues with fabric or new silhouettes.

 

Tell us a fun or funny memory from working at ‘Wish’.

It’s always a good time testing out sample prototypes for custom accessories from octopus hats to batman masks. I’m a great head model!

 

Did you dance as a kid? Do you still dance?

I did! I danced for about 10 years when I was little. I quit when I told my mom that the costumes weren’t cool enough. Guess it was destiny!

 

Where and for what did you go to school for?

I studied fashion design at the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

 

Did you have a different job before ‘Wish’?

The last job I had before ‘Wish’ was tutoring my peers at the sewing labs in college. I got to help students problem solve and put my personal input into their design choices. 😉

 

What did you want to be when you grew up? 

Ever since I could pick up a crayon I’ve been dreaming up dresses! At a more sophisticated age of 12 I wanted to design dreamy wedding dresses.

 

What are a few of your favorite things?

Well I couldn’t live without my coffee, that’s for sure. I also love anything down the home decor isle of Target, aka my whole apartment.

 

What’s your spirit animal?

Probably a doe, coming from the Pinelands I feel really connected to deer.

 

Who are your favorite artists?

My favorite artists are bluesy folk singers like The Tallest Man on Earth, Hozier and The Lumineers.
