NINA MAYA IN PERTH
WE CAUGHT UP WITH INSPIRATIONAL YOUNG
DESIGNER NINA MAYA SKRZYNSKI WHEN SHE WAS
IN PERTH FOR THE CITY’S FASHION FESTIVAL AND TO
LAUNCH HER HIGH-SUMMER RANGE. OUR MISSION?
TO DISCOVER WHAT’S HOT THIS SUMMER.
q. So what brings you to Perth?
a. I’m here for Perth Fashion Festival, the launch of my high-summer range hitting stores
and for the sales viewings of my autumn/winter 2011 collection.
q. What inspired your summer range?
a. I try to design a wardrobe of pieces that I would want to wear each season. This
season, I was inspired by the French impressionists, especially Monet and his Waterlilies
series. I begun by painting a print on a canvas and I had it digitally transferred to a print.
The spring/summer collection is effortless and fun – lots of nudes, pastels with highlight
colours and the use of Moulage – a French draping technique. The high-summer collection,
entitled The Leaf House, has stunning dresses for the end of year party season.
q. What can we look forward to in winter 2011?
a. I’ve used a great deal of soft luxurious leather in structured skirts, highly textured
brush wool, as well as Italian Devore velvets and exquisite French lace. I was inspired by
aristocratic British high society after a trip to the English countryside and, particularly, the
equestrian activities of the above. It is my most ‘themed’ collection to date, with a fantastic
collection of coats, riding jackets, jodhpur-inspired trousers and soft-tailoring pieces.
q.Tell us about your new accessories range.
a. This is the latest addition to the label, which I’m very excited about. Accessories have
always been a passion of mine and being able to include this in our brand offering is
wonderful. In the past, I have handmade beaded jewellery using Swarovski crystals on silver
chain, which were really well received by local celebrities, such as Jennifer Hawkins and
Delta Goodrem, and I’m thrilled to have them available to the public for autumn/winter
2011. We have also launched a new handbag line for the same season. It features luxury
totes and carry-alls in patent leather and suede with brushed gold trimming and hardware,
as well as beautiful hand-beaded clutches for evening wear. They start at a great price point
– at $220 for the clutch and $350 for the carry alls. All of our accessories will be available
from our new concept e-boutique, which launches in mid-November.
