Nicole Warne Takes Gary Pepper Worldwide
Nicole Warne's Launch of Gary Pepper
Nicole Warne founded the popular blog and online retailer, Gary Pepper. As one of the biggest digital influencers in the world, Nicole has followers all over the world. In 2009 the e-commerce store and blog were launched while Nicole was working full time as well as completing studies and an internship at the Australian version of Harper’s Bazaar. When she was 20 years old, she resigned her job in order to launch Garry Pepper to a worldwide audience of consumers.
Gary Pepper Girl has opened a lot of doors for Nicole Warne. She goes on a lot of trips, which means she goes through plenty of swimwear. Perhaps her favorite style is a simple black, one-piece, that features a plunging neckline or some cut out detailing. This Australian influencer brags an Instagram following of 1.7 million followers, and her travel, lifestyle, and fashion brand commands a loyal audience of over two million.
It all started in 2009 for Nicola. The native of North Avoca launched her blog and ecommerce store in one fell swoop. Initially she balanced this venture, along with her part-time studies, a full-time job, and an internship at Harper Bazaar and Grazia. Talk about energy, right? At that point, Nicola was just 20 and she made a bold decision. She deferred her studies and quit her job, focusing entirely on building the online business.
It looks like she made the right choice, because here we are now and she is a highly-regarded person in the fashion, ecommerce, digital, and social media fields. She collaborates with brands as a brand and social media consultant, a creative director, a digital strategist, and of course, as an influencer.
By 2015 Qantas Airways snapped her up as their Digital Consultant, and saw her contributing various strategies for their influencer and digital projects programs. She made the 30 under 30 list from Forbes in 2016, and was also named by Business of Fashion as one of the 500 people who are shaping the global industry (that’s two years in a row).

Yes, you’ll find Valentino, L’Oreal, Chanel, Chopard, and Dior on her list of clients. Additionally, Net-a-Porter signed her up as a Style Council Ambassador, the only influencer to receive such an honor. Both Qantas and Net-a-Porter will be continuing their relationship with Warne through 2017.
She is dedicated to the next generation of artists, models, and fashion designers.
