Born in Italy, Finetti studied architecture before moving to Australia in 1992. Finding it difficult to find work as a architect due to the language barrier, Finetti started studying fashion and design and marketing fashion from experts Richard Tyler and Romeo Gigli.
In 1995, Finetti launched his namesake label. With his background in architecture influencing his structured and unique designs, Finetti soon gained a loyal following.
In 2002, his work was bought by the Powerhouse Museum for their permanent collection and exhibited from April to June 2002 in an exhibit called "Sourcing the Muse".
In 2003, Finetti launched Nicola Finetti aXessory. In 2004 Finetti released his successful diffusion line Nylon Flocks, which is stocked in Australian retail giant Myer.
