Designer Nicole Wesseling is stimulated by her rich Dutch heritage and love of travel. Her design journey began at an early age, sewing and styling her own outfits during her early teens. After graduating from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in 2014, Wesseling delved straight into her design career as In-House Designer at FRENCH83. She continues to rapidly expand a design portfolio for the young brand, developing a focused New Zealand label that continues to expand both locally and in Asia.

The FRENCH83 gentleman lives a fast paced lifestyle with balanced work life integration. His brilliant appearance is built on the importance of comfort and notable quality. He has an eye for detail; looking one hundred percent on point one hundred percent of the time.

Traditional values are reflected in a FRENCH83 suit, encompassing an exceptional cut whist focusing on utilitarian detailing. With an established background in made-to-measure tailoring, FRENCH83 also provides a vast range of ready-to-wear garments for a versatile wardrobe.

The FRENCH83 team is focused on bringing a fresh approach to New Zealand menswear whilst continuing to spread their vision to selected stores internationally.
