Nicole Mentado Burman was born in 1992 surrounded by the seaside culture of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands). He grew up in a family with a strong textile tradition. His grandfather is the owner of Mentado Uniformes and his parents created the well-known intimates, swimwear and sportswear brands Lenita & XTG from scratch.
The workshops, patterns, fabrics, threads and the creative world in which the day-to-day life of her immediate environment revolved soon became her playground. From the earliest childhood, she traveled and moved in the circles and ins and outs of the fashion world (fairs, catwalks, visits to suppliers, inspiring trips... as an only child, she is not separated from the creative pairing formed by Luis Mentado and Lenita Burman).
But far from settling in, he decided to nurture his own style and learn knowledge by training in Fashion Design at the Marangoni Institute in Milan and perfecting himself with various postgraduate degrees oriented to the world of Marketing at Central Saint Martins, in London; two of the most prestigious educational centers in the world in the fashion sector.
Once she finished her studies, she decided to return home, launching her first collection under the signs of 'Maldito Sweet', a brand that she recorded and dreamed of in her university years and on which she prints her stamp as a creator by presenting it at the GCMC Swimwear Fashion Show 2014.
Passionate about dance, travel, cinema and the world of art, Nicole's creations modernize the old canons of fashion. Always eternal.
