“I get a lot of inspiration on the train or in the shower. Sometimes when I am in the shower, I figure so much stuff out that my showers end up being really long (sorry environment)!”

Following fashion advice from your mom can be a bit of a gamble, but this particular maker has had the odds in her favor all along. Nina's mom is an adventurous clothing designer who introduced her to all of the latest colors, textiles and textures from a very early age, instilling a passion for the craft that lasted into adulthood. They eventually decided to pair up and form a mother-daughter fashion line comprised of detailed, personal pieces that are suitable for everyday wear. Each handmade item offers a unique story, not to mention a little style luck for the rest of us lacking fashion-forward moms.
