Showing Today | NOMIA
Yara Flinn is the 27-year-old designer of NY-based fashion line NOMIA, which launched in Spring 2007. A schooled video artist and sculptor from Oberlin College, Yara began experimenting with fashion while studying there, combining her love of art and fashion through multimedia video fashion shows/installations. After graduating Yara worked at the Fondazione Prada, a contemporary art non-profit run by the Italian fashion house, as well as an internship at the fashion-forward, art-influenced fashion label, United Bamboo. The sculptural approach she takes to designing her collections is informed by her studies of draping and patternmaking at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Since NOMIA’s premiere in 2007, the collection has been featured in exclusive boutiques nationwide, including Barney’s Coop, OAK, Intermix, and Steven Alan in New York City. The focus of NOMIA collections is to create artistic pieces with an edge and a strong sense of a modern, yet feminine point of view. The NOMIA woman is strong, creative, sensual, and empowered.
