After graduating from San Diego State University, with a B.S. in Psychology in 2002, Nicky moved back home to Los Angeles to work with her Aunt, Miriam Schwartz, with her girl’s dress line, C.W. Designs. Learning fabric, trim, pattern making, design and sales, Nicky learned from the best, and discovered her calling in sales!
From there, Nicky took a sales position in a children’s apparel showroom with Bill Kahn, working with lines such as Monkeywear, Charlie Rocket, and Zutano. It was there that Nicky honed her sales skills in a showroom setting: showing lines, merchandising, writing orders, and helping steer the design teams of each brand in a direction that would create trends in kids fashion.
In 2006, Nicky was offered a position with Showroom 903 as the Children’s Sales Rep for Joe’s Jeans, C&C California, and Da-Nang. It was a unique opportunity to head the West Coast sales for prestigious brands. Nicky nurtured these lines to tremendous growth until it was finally time to open Mini 903 on the 6th Floor of the California Market Center in late 2006. She helped design and create Mini 903, and was solely put in charge of the kids business for Mini 903. With the children’s showroom in place, she had the opportunity to expand the business. That’s when additional brands came on board including Penguin, Petite Joie, and many more. After months of deliberation, in the spring of 2009, Nicky decided it was time for her to open her own showroom.
Over the years, Nicky’s experience and invaluable knowledge helped her create her own philosophy and style of doing business she wanted to introduce to Children’s Apparel Sales.
She envisioned creating a showroom with her own unique style of customer service and sales she wanted to deliver to her lines and clients. Nicky Rose Kids opened its doors in July 2009. As they say all good things happen in bundles, a few months after Nicky Rose Kids opened its doors, Nicky and her husband found out they were expecting their first child. With a new business and a baby on the way, 2009 was definitely a big year! Nicky Rose Kids has represented such distinguished brands as 7 For All Mankind, Juicy Couture, Vince, Kate Spade and many more.
In 2012, Nicky and her husband welcomed their second son.
Nicky Rose Kids is owned and operated by Nicky Coscas.
