You had a crush on Yara in high school. She’s beautiful, basketball-tall, and she’s got the sort of disarming charm that can make fast friends of anyone, regardless of who you run with.
She is the founding designer of NOMIA, a fashion line that plants a flag in the uncharted territory we first navigate in young adulthood as we seek out an identity. Her pieces embrace the youthful ethos of experimentation, shedding the awkwardness and naïveté of adolescence to achieve a style that is confident, adventurous and accessible.
Her success with the brand has earned her a coveted spot in the CFDA’s Fashion Incubator program alongside nine other designers, where she is hard at work expanding and refining the collections that put NOMIA in a class of its own.
