During this time she even perfected her photography skills. By 2012, Nichole was well on her way to becoming a self-made entrepreneur despite what her family thought was her calling.

In 2014, Nichole launched a very successful Los Angeles Based online boutique grossing over a million dollars in under 3 years.
Then again following her heart she walked away and created yet another successful fashion venture.
In two weeks she created a captivating collection debuting as an opener for a Los Angles Fashion Show. Days later she leaped to further make her mark in the fashion industry, by launching her very own online brand and boutique Shop Nichole Lynel. Following with highly anticipated blog launching this spring , Nichole Lynel is on her way to a promising future in Fashion.
