Lis Harvey of NICO Underwear talks to us on the global theme of Pioneer.
About the speaker
Lis Harvey splits her time between freelance photography work and running underwear and basics label NICO. A degree in Photography from the Queensland College of Art kick started a career in advertising and commercial photography and a craving for creative expression led to the beginning of NICO. A deep interest in the visual and a passion for creative problem solving are behind both.
Lis is represented by Compadre Picture Co. and produces photographic work for clients including RACQ, Suncorp, University of Queensland, CUA and Kinder. NICO continues to grow a loyal following and has been recognised for a commitment to fashion, ethics and sustainability with coverage in Peppermint Magazine, Broadsheet, Frankie Magazine and as the winner of the Lingerie and Swimwear category at the Source Awards.
