Hell on Heels Couture was created by fashion activist & designer Nikola Vendettoli in Downtown Phoenix, AZ. Nikola is a self taught designer who has made customized clothing since 1998.
Her passion for fashion and art has always been influenced by her love of music culture to the gritty punk rock underground and that is evident in all things she creates.
In the late 90's, early 00's Nikola was making unconventional clothing for the fashion victims in the rave scene, strippers, drag queens, and roller derby skaters. Being embedded in self-identified female & LGBTQ+ communities, that often didn't have a voice, but were crazy enough to take a stand and create change.
In early 2010, Nikola developed her clothing line, Hell on Heels Couture. The vision for her line came from years in the fashion industry serving as an independent designer, stylist and artist living and working in the live music capital of the world, Austin, TX.
Each Hell on Heels Couture item is custom handmade and embellished. Since her start, her designs have always been very fashion forward, with a focus on ethical, sustainable fashion. Creating trends for the counterculture and making a scene is what sets Nikola apart from other designers.
