I’m inviting You to the NYMF show at Tallinn Fashion Week. Not just to see the beautiful dresses with your eyes but to experience something that I can’t describe with the words yet but what I can express with the language of dresses. I’d like to open a portal on the stage of Tallinn Fashion Week and invoke the whole spectrum of different goddesses through it. To be the guide, the bridge between the visible and invisible world. I’m not sure what’s going to happen but I’m curious and want to experiment. And even if nothing happens… you still would be touched with something really beautiful.
Anyway… I will try to open the portal on Saturday, October 19, 19:00, at Tallinn Fashion Week in Kultuurikatel.
I feel that before continuing the journey of creating a collection I need to share with you also my dragonfly story.
Me and NYMF have been one. If anything happens with NYMF, it will affect me and also every single experience of mine affects NYMF. Some of you probably already know that I tried to separate myself from NYMF for some time. But very few actually know that I also experienced the complete let-go, the death of NYMF at that period. It was one of the deepest points in my journey but actually, it liberated me a lot. For more than 12 years I had thought that NYMF was something that I just had to do, by being kind of my identity. But after going through this point I felt that I’m not obligated to do anything anymore, from now I have completely free choice to choose anything in my life.
Coming back to Estonia and to my studio, there was still the NYMF’s “bear-lady” on the wall. Still eyes closed, still deep-diving in her innerworlds… although I had felt already for some time tha...
Well, traditionally one of the first steps in the journey of creating a collection is to create a moodboard. Usually, it should give you a first impression of how the collection would look like visually: the colors, silhouettes, details, style, etc... My moodboard this time carries exactly the opposite. It reflects everything that is not visual. Carrying rather invisible. And this is exactly what I want to bring to you with my dresses. The invisibility. The experience.
- Dress as an experience. -
By nature, I am the explorer. The experiencer. Probably that’s why I live quite an extreme way in some context. To experience as wide range of variations as possible. And recently my experiences have become more and more unearthly, magical and divine.
The moodboard on this photo hasn’t been made especially for this collection or for this writing. I found it from my phone while browsing the gallery about my paradise trip from this spring. But I decided to share it because it gives the closest impr...
I used to think that my creation process starts from the fabrics. But now I understand that actually it starts before. Through some life lesson I’m experiencing at that time and the fabrics are actually just the first form of materializing my state of feeling or being.
The story of this new collection fabrics brings us to this springtime, to the time when I actually had stopped working for unknown time.
I had disconnected myself from the life I used to have, staying in the Paradise, just enjoying the merriment of life, peeling off these false and unnecessary layers and roles, one by one… learning how to just be…
But still, from time to time, I was overtaken by some familiar patterns I used to have. And my practical mind was saying: “Hey Triin, you are going to be in Estonia in May… you always!!! present a new collection at that time… And of course all your clients are so impatiently waiting for this Bali collection… you have tons of ultra colourfully patterned batik fabrics in this paradi...
I have been quite silent in a creative way for a while, but at the last full moon I reached to the point when I was manifesting to the glowing moon in the night sky that “now I’m ready for creating again". It didn’t take long. Already next morning I received an e-mail with the invitation to participate in the Tallinn Fashion Week this fall. I haven’t felt such an internal burning and a creative drive for quite a long time… And even though my mind wanted to kill the idea in every way, I still decided to follow my inner fire and say “yes” to the challenge.
So, dear NYMF fans, please save the date into your calendars: October 19, 2019, NYMF on the stage of Tallinn Fashion Week. Huh… now it’s all said and there is no turning-back ..
But I have one more feeling considering all of this… Usually I share only the outcome - the catwalk or a lookbook of the collection, but this time I have a strong feeling that I would love to invite you also to the journey. The journey, the process, the birthing...
NYMF is so totally grateful to be part of creating some magic again.
Estonian super talented and passionate cellist Silvia Ilves just released her cello cover music video for the beloved "Game of Thrones" melody and NYMF Fashion was honored to empower all these beautiful cellists with the Spirit Animal dresses in it.
And by the way, some of these powerful dresses are still available in our studio.
NYMF is really blessed to collaborate with the masters. Especially with the masters who are being the channels for the deep beauty and love entering into this world. I feel that the Estonian cellist Silvia Ilves and NYMF - we both do the same by speaking our own language. And uniting our skills makes the message even more powerful.
So please enjoy.
