She’s been dubbed the “next big thing” by Vogue and now Nicole Millar is joining the awesome ambassador foursome as the face of our new Home Grown™ Tee range. The Aussie indie singer first rose to fame in 2014, when she featured on the Peking Duck track, “High,” which went on to win an ARIA Award and reach number two on Triple J’s Hottest 100. As a star on the rise, we couldn’t think of a better ambassador to round out our tribe of home grown talent. We caught up with Nicole, fresh from her Vogue Fashion’s Night Out Bonds store appearance, to find out which style of tee style rocks her world.
