Fashion & Jewellery

Nicky Johnstone
Nicky has always loved clothes and fabrics and started out making velvet hats which she sold at markets. From there the progression was quite simple and soon she was making clothing. She has developed her Envy range over the years and opened the Scarlet Studio in Greenside 2 years ago, in addition to her market outlets at Rooftop and Finders Keepers. She and Elana are now collaborating in a new venture – nickel.
Nicky describes the brand as “fresh, bold, flirty with timeless basics that are confident and quirky. The styling is romantic and garments are designed to be worn as individual pieces or layered”. Look out for nickel, making its debut in new and exciting spaces.

Elana Mckivergan
“Ever since I was little I just loved to dress up and would spend hours, in fact I still do, just playing with my clothes and accessories putting looks together. My friends all know where to come when they are looking for a special outfit for an occasion. A friend recently had to attend a ‘red carpet’ affair and when asked who she was wearing, said: Elana.”
Elana has an interior decor company called Zen Interiors and has spent the past 30 odd years creating specialised paint finishes, personalised artwork and soft furnishings. She is a happily married mom to 4 fine young men. She is enormously passionate about photography and travel, and both feature in the merchandise she sources and creates for the nickel range.
