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.

You’re known for your vibrant, globally-inspired prints and bold hues. Where do you gather inspiration for such amazing and unmistakable designs?

M: Travel is a huge source of inspiration for me. As is nature and the spiritual world.


Speaking of cool prints, any tips on how to pull off the whole mixing prints trend cohesively?

M: If you’re going to mix prints, one tip is to mix a larger print with a smaller print so you’re not competing with two large prints together. It’s also nice to mix solids in!

 

When you go on summer getaways, what are some wardrobe essentials that you always pack?

M: I always pack an assortment of cover ups and colorful sarongs to use as anything from a beach blanket to a turban to a wrap.

What are some of your go-to pieces for staying cool in the summer while looking work appropriate?

M: Dresses carry me through these hot Las Vegas summers! I’m all about a fun feminine print with color. I love the duality of either wearing a bold dress with simple shoes and accessories with or wearing a beautiful basic dress and pulling it together with more statement accents!

What are some of your can’t-live-without accessories this season?

M: Year-round, I cannot live without sunglasses!  I love how the right pair can completely bring your outfit together. Whether it’s a fun and brightly colored pair for a fun day at the beach/pool or a more classic, put-together pair--- sunglasses are my absolute favorite accessories!

Describe your perfect day-to-night ensemble.

M: My perfect day-to-night outfit will always consist of a nice pair of dark denim with a basic top, which can then be dressed up with jewelry and beautiful shoes for the evening.
