Halloween weekend is finally upon us! We've had Halloween costumes on the brain all week and we're not the only ones. We decided to ask some of our favorite designers what they were planning on dressing up as because we figured that, as fashion designers, they'd have some pretty creative ideas. And we were right.

Nomia designer Yara Flynn has always been popular with the avant garde art-y/fashion-y set, so it was fitting that her spring 2012 presentation involved mixed media. A video of models on beach in Montauk opened the show, Georgia O’Keefe's haunting voice provided the soundtrack. A real live runway show followed the short film to show off Flynn's collection inspired by O'Keefe's travels to New Mexico. Her signature cutouts on dresses and reinforced knees on pants were still there, but there was a heightened maturity and grace to this collection. “I obviously didn’t go to New Mexico to shoot a video,” Flynn said. "And I didn’t want it to be too literal, so we went to the dunes in Montauk. My brand is associated with downtown and I wanted to take it somewhere purer.”
For fall, Nomia designer Yara Flinn looked east for inspiration. Far east. Citing traditional Japanese armor as her jumping off point, Flinn created a collection that combines rigid construction with Flinn's signature easy draping and cuts.
Cool kid brands Nomia and Heutchy are having a secret family and friends sale tomorrow! Discounts will be up to 50% off regular prices of their Fall 2010 collections, meaning you can achieve Nomia's sleek look at a fraction of the cost. You can check out Nomia's Fall 2010 collection on its website, where you'll find everything from sexy black dresses to billowing tops and a standout white dress with metal shoulder. Considering that winter is here to stay, these looks are still in season and will brighten up your dreary days.
This season Nomia, one of the Fashionista 15, stepped up its game, showing in a cavernous space neighboring Milk Studios. The scene was minimal meets hip with a singular white polygonal structure as the backdrop, to match the Nomia girl's unembellished, downtown look. Designer Yara Flinn's collection was refreshingly icy in the best sense, like a half frozen lemonade in ninety degree heat. (Said heat, thankfully, took a hiatus for NYFW.) The unfettered nature of Flinn's designs are a breath of fresh air in what can feel like an over-saturated, hyper-sensory streak of shows.
