Artist Interview: Nomi Designs' Nomi Levi

Artist Interview: Nomi Designs' Nomi Levi

Nomi Designs is a collection of 100% linen wearables made by hand in the Victoria studio of designer Nomi Levi.

Who are you and what do you design?

My name is Nomi. I am a fashion designer and creator of Nomi Designs. My collection features simple minimalist pieces, earthy tones and natural linen.

Tell us about your journey as an artist.

I have worked in various creative crafts from landscape architecture to floral design. Since my children were young, I have always made clothing for them. Nomi Designs was a natural combination of my love for creativity and making beautiful pieces for the people I love.

If you could choose one word for your collection, what would it be?

Harmony.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Since I was a child, I have always seen the world through an artist’s eye. I draw inspiration from natural landscapes, the harmony between the shapes and colour. I am also inspired by the beautiful people that I have connected with throughout my life. That is where I get the names for my pieces.

Have you taken any risks to land where you are now?

Many risks have led me to where I am now, from immigrating to Canada, to quitting my job last year. I have poured my soul into this company and I feel like I have found something that I am truly passionate about.

Looking ahead, what do you hope to accomplish?

I hope to expand my business through my online shop and retailers in Canada and the States. I’m excited to see where the next year takes me.
