“I updated the idea of the booster seat with new functionality through upcycled materials. The addition of newspapers and foam inserts provide a different level of comfort and practicality. While the clear storage pouches, crossword puzzles, and magnifying glass help exercise the mind and boost brain cells.” - Nicole McLaughlin
Nicole McLaughlin is a New York-based designer. In 2018, a hobby evolved into a career, one that focuses on the ever-evolving exploration around upcycling and sustainable fashion. Taking a tongue-in-cheek approach to her creative process, Nicole has transformed old volleyballs into slippers, camera bags into bralettes, and crafted board shorts from packets of Haribo gummies. This unexpected translation of materials allows her to uniquely highlight the message of sustainability — a key element to her success in changing the perception around waste and sustainable design.
