NAOMI NOMI was founded by Naomi (Nomi) Mishkin, an artist and designer currently making things in Brooklyn, NY. Trained as a glassblower, she spent a decade making sculpture before looking around her studio and realizing that all of her sculptures had sleeves and hemlines and were meant to be worn and worked in, not just looked at. As the granddaughter of a wedding dress manufacturer and the great-granddaughter of a pattern cutter, the schmatte life was apparently hard to shake. So, after years of sewing for herself (and for some friends who low key begged for more), in 2018 she officially launched NAOMI NOMI.
The conceptual themes of Nomi’s sculpture ring true in her clothes:
love your materials and put meaning in the making.
