What were some inspirations for your fall collection?

N: The artisans and craftsman of the world, the breathtaking embroideries in the Met show, my own extensive archive and a lifetime of travels to souks and markets from all over.


Describe the woman you design for.

N: Our woman is sexy and powerful, feminine and taken seriously. She’s the life of the party…she’s the boss.


What are some things that are on top of your must-have list for fall transition? 

N: There are so many great new pieces from our fall collection! The Love Crime Dress is a great desk-to-dinner dress and the print is beautiful. The Interwoven Pullover is perfect for those fall nights you find yourself walking around the city or in front of a campfire. For a classic go-to look with tights and booties, the No Regrets Dress is incredibly flattering.

 

Where/when do you feel your most creative?

N: A trip to Paris or Morocco with my daughter, Violet, is always inspiring. I’m always anxious to get back into the studio and work out the ideas that have been brewing.

 

New York Fashion Week is just around the corner; what are you most looking forward to this time around?

N: We’ve been working really hard to get more runway looks into production so the customer can shop straight from the fashion show.
