I’m Nicola Hobbs, creator of Sparkle Ice.
I’ll work with you to create exactly the look you want; with each design reflecting the style of the music you’ll be skating to and with all elements of your choreography considered to make sure it works perfectly for you.
I’m a skater myself; Sparkle Ice began with me making costumes for my fellow skaters at Queens Ice Rink in London. My background is in theatre costume design and textile artistry – I’ve got a degree in Theatre Design from Nottingham Trent University – and I’ve worked extensively making specialist character costumes for Rainbow Productions Ltd, which included working with a very wide range of fabrics and materials.
All of this combines to give me a thorough understanding of skater’s costume requirements, and the ability to make you something truly special. I only use the best possible fabrics and stunning crystals.
Having a costume that looks incredible and, most importantly, complements you as a skater, will help you feel confident and skate like a champion.
