Opening her show with a recording of Georgia O’Keefe talking about New Mexico that accompanied a film of pieces of the collection shot on a beach in Montauk, NOMIA designer Yara Flynn set the tone for her Spring 2012 Collection. Ms. Flynn drew upon the colors of New Mexico, from the turquoise jewelry to the oranges, reds and rust of the sunsets. The silhouettes also had a subtle reference to New Mexico with relaxed but refined drapes.
Yara Flynn’s design vision is definitely influenced by her video artist and sculpting background. Her sculptural approach to draping creates the artistic silhouettes that have made her popular with the avante garde fashion crowd.
We spoke to Yara Flynn about the NOMIA label and what her vision was for Spring 2012.
