Streetwear is a compilation of styles from a variety of different areas. Enter Nicholas Tershay, aka Nicky Diamond, the founder of Diamond Supply Co. Nicky Diamond decided that he would start a skate hardware brand from his bedroom and he’s been in the business ever since. Once he moved to Los Angeles in 2000, he began building Diamond Supply Co. to include everything from decks to bolts to bearings to tees. With a strong passion for putting out quality products, Tershay quickly gained the support of the skate and streetwear community. 

Aside from doing the tees and skate gear, Diamond also teamed up with Nike SB to create his own signature Dunk that became a solid cop in the sneaker community. In 2006, the Diamond Supply Co. flagship Fairfax store was born and it became home to special flash launches and guest appearances by pro skaters, artists, and athletes alike. Diamond has opened flagships in New York and in his hometown of San Francisco. He continues to collaborate with some of the best in the business and continues to grow the integrity and reputation of the Diamond Supply Co. brand.


Yellowbrick believes that a student’s personal passion and hustle – rather than financial resources – should determine how far they can go. Along with our partners, our aim is to empower students who are passionate about streetwear to pursue rewarding career opportunities that can spark their interest and open doors to a fulfilling future.

Yellowbrick’s programs have the potential to change students lives by:

  • Providing a valuable credential, in the form of a certificate from a leading university, that will help open doors to career ies that students may not have otherwise known about
  • Developing real-world skills that empower students to seize these opportunities
  • Informing choices and helping students build an actionable roadmap toward setting and accomplishing career goals
  • Inspiring dreams and building the confidence and know-how to pursue them

Nicky Diamond’s scholarship is to empower up-and-comers to pursue careers in streetwear and related fields.
