The Nomia Fall 2011 collection by Yara Flinn was a pleasure to be present for. The show took place at The Standard in a small wooden room where media would take up 1/3 of the space, the audience jam packed on one side of the runway taking up a full third of space, & the other third of the room reserved for the models. I came in about an hour before showtime & lounged about. The models, still in their street clothes & hair clips, came out about 45 minutes before showtime to learn the runway routine. They were to walk down the bordered runway to then stand on one side of the wall until every girl has come out. They ran the full show twice so the tight crowd can actually capture the collection. Speaking of which, the collection was pretty on point; it was classy with a twist on silhouettes. My favorite Fall 2011 elements were included in this collection as well: patches of colors, sheer fabrics, & cut-outs. The plated necklaces are awesome too.
