Nicole Schott developed a fascination with costume and character at a very young age. Before she could read, she would pull her little red wagon full of costumes around the neighborhood dressing all the kids to create fantastic shows for anyone willing to watch.
Beginning with the study of fashion history at Fullerton College, Nicole continued on to earn a BFA in Theatrical Costume Design from Emerson College. In her final year at Emerson, she was honored with a Kennedy Center award for her design of "From Berlin to Broadway" and earned a week-long trip to study with top costume designers and educators at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Nicole then went on to receive her MFA in Costume Design from the University of California, Irvine.
After years of theatrical design, Nicole first experienced film in 2003 and found her true passion. She believes the media of film and television allow for a collaboration and exploration of realism like nothing else. Quickly gaining experience and recognition through both period and contemporary works, Nicole has gone on to design a variety of film and television. Her work includes the upcoming "Baby Geniuses" sequel starring Jon Voight, as well as the Kelly Osbourne, Ed Asner, Paul Ben Victor, and Michael Rapaport ensemble comedy "Should’ve Been Romeo", the My Network TV series "Saints and Sinners", and the feature film "La Linea" starring Ray Liotta and Andy Garcia.
