Triin Kärblane is the first fashion designer in Estonia whose NYMF brand was invited for participation in Milano Fashion Week – one of the most important haute couture events of the year that starts in the world’s fashion capital Milan already today.
According to the creator of NYMF Triin Kärblane, the invitation from the organisers of Milano Fashion Week was a huge surprise. “While in the world of fashion preparation for such events usually takes years, for NYMF everything happened completely unexpectedly – we were selected as one of the five brands that received an invitation for participation in the Emerging Talents show. The short time for preparation was a challenge, but as we were creating history of our brand and our dresses, we were always waiting for such an opportunity,” said Kärblane.
Emerging Talents Show is an event that takes place as a part of Milano Fashion Week, introducing rising stars of fashion to the public. Only five designers the works of which have attracted attention of masters of the fashion world receive such invitation. NYMF received a unique opportunity to demonstrate on the catwalk ten of its dresses, and to open its own pop-up boutique for two days. The competition among those who wish to participate in Milano Fashion Week is really tough – new promising brands take part in the fashion week together with other world-famous brands, such as Laura Biagiotti, Prada, Gucci, Moschino, Versace, Giorgio and Emporio Armani, Atsushi Nakashima, Fendi, etc.
The show of the rising stars, which among others will bring NYMF to the catwalk, will take place as a part of Milano Fashion Week on Saturday, 22 February at 18:00 Estonian time: fashionweekonline.com/event/emerging-talents-milan-fashion-show
NYMF attracted attention of the organisers of Milano Fashion Week during the popular Tallinn Fashion Week show, where designer Triin Kärblane presented her “Portaal” collection for the first time. Triin noted that her collection gives any woman an opportunity to unveil ancient mystical femininity: “None of the dresses of the “Portaal” collection is just a dress, and every woman who was able to discover the power of a goddess in herself through NYMF can confirm that. Every dress has its own character and purpose, just like a different side of a goddess.”
On the catwalk of Milano Fashion Week located in the luxurious Visconti Palace NYMF will yet again present its “Portaal” collection and invite the audience to discover the entire spectrum of appearances of a goddess. Telling about the collection, Triin Kärblane uses magical words: “It reminds of a metamorphosis, when a nymph who has been hiding from the world takes the shape of a fragile yet strong dragonfly. All this also describes a recent transformation of myself and my brand. The dragonfly symbolises a messenger and a guide between two worlds – visible and invisible, real and illusory.”
“The “Portaal” collection combines bright unearthly elements with more earthly ones, it combines a feminine softness and flexibility with a rustic power, being a bridge between the mystical Moon and bright Sun, creating an ideal balance and harmony. NYMF makes invisible goddesses visible. As on the catwalk, so inside every woman,” added Kärblane.
NYMF – is an international fashion brand founded in Estonia, the goal of which is to help women discover their powers through the magical language of dresses. The story of NYMF is a very personal one – it is a tale about the metamorphic journey of Triin Kärblane, the designer herself, in which a fragile young nymph evolves into a powerful dragonfly goddess over 13 years and 36 collections. This journey has been all about opening doors into different worlds that in turn lead to deeply profound shamanic quests and enchantingly divine palaces, giving her a chance to experience a whole spectre of feminine archetypes, icons and goddesses within herself and to absorb their power and wisdom.
This journey has been incredibly beautiful, fascinating, venturesome, playful, extreme and enriching. But at times also destructive, much like a purgatory. The most important part has been Triin’s unwavering dedication to staying true to her own path, not letting herself be provoked by widespread fashion trends, slowly creating her very own NYMF world one dress at a time.
