The following feature appears in the September 2016 issue of NYLON.

Those familiar with Yara Flinn’s fashion brand Nomia won’t be surprised that her one-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is as minimal-chic as the collections for which she’s known. “I make dresses for women who don’t like dresses,” says the longtime New York City dweller, sitting on a linear gray sofa in a sporty sleeveless anorak-style midi frock of her own design.

“It’s so hard to find a dress that feels like jeans and a T-shirt—not only in terms of comfort, but also feeling casual and put-together.” Her aesthetic, she says, “is really about juxtapositions: the tensions between masculine and feminine, between utilitarian and luxury. I like recontextualizing shapes into unexpected fabrics. Those are the things I find most exciting about design.”
