Namilia was definitely the wildest show I went to at New York fashion week!
Starting from the hard rock music playing while we waited for the show, along with a Kelly Osbourne sighting, the energy was electric.
“REBELS. PROVOCATEURS. DESTROYERS OF FALSE PERCEPTION. NAMILIA IS DRIVEN BY AN UNWAVERING REVOLUTIONARY YOUTH SPIRIT COMMITTED AND DEVOTED TO THE TRUE FEMININE IN ALL HER FORMS.”
… from the Namilia website
The first looks incorporated imagery from the 1996 version of Romeo and Juliet, along with the Garbage song from the soundtrack playing as the models walked.
The music was a fun trip down memory lane. Next up? Some 70’s Led Zeppelin.
Some of the looks were definitely controversial, playing with sex, politics, and religious imagery.
Who is Namilia?
“NAMILIA was founded in 2015 by Berlin based designers Nan Li and Emilia Pfohl. The duo met while attending University of the Arts Berlin. Li went on to earn a Masters degree from the prestigious Royal College of Art London and quickly returned to Berlin to launch NAMILIA with Pfohl.”
Though not for everyone, I enjoyed the avant garde show. I can’t say I’d wear any of the outfits anywhere, but I’m sure I’m not their target audience. The music, energy, and experimental looks were cool and interesting. I will definitely keep an eye on Namilia to see what they’re up to next!
