Sculpture and movement in NOMIA’s S/S 2013 collection

On Tuesday night in conjunction with New York City’s Fashion Week, independent designers, artists and fashion bloggers alike gathered in a small room at the Standard Hotel to watch sculptor/video artist turned designer Yara Flinn showcase her 2013 Spring/Summer collection. Nomia, the ready-to-wear women’s line, focuses on designs that “create artistic, directional pieces with an edge that leave the wearer feeling strong, chic, sophisticated and empowered.”

Ambient music beats and a fresh white runway lead the way for models with simple hair and dark eyebrows dressed in unconventional silhouettes pairing together structural fabrics with flowing sheer accents. The combination between boxy tops and draped pants, with a hint of human form in between, created an image of model masked in sculpture. It was Nomia’s sculptural patterns and fabrics were the most interesting, using nylon that almost resembled lacquered drywall and a marble inspired pattern that looked like carved stone. The last look, a form fitting dress with the marble pattern silhouette and added sheer train, spoke for curves that were missing in other looks, bringing sculpture to life at the end of the show.
