We had an exclusive look at Nomia’s Fall Winter 2017 New York Fashion Week presentation.
The womanswear line was created by Yara Flinn and first launched in 2009. Since then Flinn’s always found creative and offbeat ways to present her collection and this season was no different. The Nomia Fall Winter 2017 collection was held at The Supermarket in Soho and featured performances by Lizzi Bougatsos. Along with the musical accompaniment, the visuals were stunning. The presentation space also features an Installation by The Principals with Metaflora. There were beautiful projections of patterns and movement on a back drop of mountain-esque statues. Unlike most other New York Fashion Week presentations Nomia had its audience all stand in the middle while the models showed off their looks around the crowd.[slideshow]
The line as well as its various collections draw inspiration from architecture and “utilitarian workwear.” This collection in particular definitely played with a variety of silhouettes and structures, some more feminine and some more masculine. The color palette was quite muted with mostly neutrals and a few printed pieces. Flinn experimented with oversized jackets and outerwear, often complemented by a more form fitting element such as straight-leg trousers. The different fabrics included velvet, mesh, silk, leather, cotton and much more. At the end of the show Flinn came out and walked with her models before joining in the crowd and mingling with guests.
