Designer Yara Flinn of the New York-based fashion line Nomia, has been known to incorporate her background in video art and sculpture in her aesthetic, and her Fall 2012 collection was no exception.
This season, Flinn presented floating dresses with folds and draping reminiscent of paint brush strokes drawn onto colorful silks.
Taking a sculptural approach to design, Flinn makes an effort to consider the female form in her draping technique and impeccable tailoring. Experimenting with a neon color palette, shades of cobalt blue and fuchsia were a playful addition to a sleek and sophisticated presentation.
The art-inspired collection embodied feminine detail with body-hugging shapes and strategic cutouts. The inclusion of soft pieces like shirt dresses and sleeveless shirts that can be easily worn as separates, were a necessary balance to the structured and asymmetrical pieces that had more of an edge.
