...also known as "Art Deco", was first exibited in 1925 at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in one of my favorite cities in the world, Paris. It began as a Modernist reaction against the Art Nouveau style. It is characterized by the use of angular and symmetrical geometric forms. Art Deco is simply modernism turned into fashion.
This artwork from the 1920s gives me so much inspiration for a colorful, vibrant and modern collection.
The Nikki Marie Fall 2015 collection is inspired by my favorite show character Phryne Fisher (boss lady) and the bold lines of the Art Deco era.
Don't be fooled by her charming looks, she is a boss lady.
