New York Fashion Week February 2009 Qianya Martin

Qianya Martin, Fashion and Knitwear Design – A native of Southern California, Qianya developed her collection watching the flares, ripples and repetition of the ocean and tide pools on Agate Beach in Bolinas, California.  She introduced sheer fabric as the ocean has no embellishments, no make-up and nothing to hide. “My collection is about tuning in to the purest nature of yourself and just being accepted for the beauty of who and what you are.”
