Australian based designer, Polly Siu founded her label, NISHE, in 2008. Polly is a rising designer with an eye for pretty feminine and fun pretty dresses and business smarts. She has racked up an impressive list of accolades and experience which includes winning the Australian Regional Prize  in 2000 and is a nominee for  nominee for the prestigious Woolmark Prize 2014. 

A graduate of Central Saint Martins in London, she studied Textile design and did a stint at shoe retail brand, Le Saunda  in Hong Kong before launching her first collection in London in 2010.

Polly deigns with a boundless enthusiasm for the craft and believes that rules should  applied to design or art. Nische’s style can be described as modern vintage, she designs pretty vintage inspired dresses and ruffled blouses in eclectic mix of patterns and prints. The label doesn’t take itself too seriously and is fun and modern at the same time.

With prices ranging between HK$500- 1,200, NISHE is smart to price her designer label at the affordable range, a rarity with designer labels to ensure the brand remains accessible to her target consumer.

Nishe is stocked on ASOS and MODCLOTH in the US and she has been featured in fashion publications like Jessica and Elle.
