There are a lot of things in the newest collection of Novis that inspire me in my work as a graphic designer: The bold and vibrant color combinations, the shapes and cuts of the clothing and especially the graphical elements. The woman behind this fashion brand is Jordana Warmflash, who launched Novis in 2012 in New York City. When she was 14, her mother sparked her love of craftsmanship by teaching her to sew on her family’s old sewing machine. Jordana’s passion for the design and architecture of clothing matured during her time at Washington Universty in St. Louis, and her early career at Zac Posen, Peter Som and Alice + Olivia. Jordana says that she finds inspiration by refined and courageous women who are confident in their own eccentricities.
