About

Nucleus has been around for the best part of two decades.  Started straight out of Design School by Nicole Rasmussen, it’s what she knows.

Made in Cape Town, South Africa from a deep love for the country and it’s natural beauty.  Being able to see the Mountain and the Sea everyday adds a great amount to the peace and creativity felt through each of our garments.

Nucleus clothing has a retro classic feel and added little quirks, with much pride and thought going into each and every garment’s fit.  We love colour, we love print and good quality.  We believe that you feel your best when you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing.

All our garments are made in house by a team of dedicated Seamstresses and Finishers including Nicole.  Nothing is mass produced, in fact most of our garments are made to order so that we don’t waste, we care for the environment and you can be sure that detail and care is given to your purchase.

Nicole makes each pattern by hand and grades all the sizes herself.  We believe all sizes are beautiful so we offer most of our garments from a size S to a size 3XL or even 4XL.

Nucleus clothes can last you decades too,  in fact we still have people asking for their old favourites that are out of production, we try and accommodate special requests like these as often and as much as possible.

We want everyone to own at least one Nucleus garment and get hooked and come back for more.
