Niiamar is inspired by the brilliance of fashion. He has been influenced by industry icons, including Valentino Garavani, Halston and the late Patrick Kelly. Icons whose work set the standards, often redefining the art of fashion. From Evening Wear to Ready-to-Wear, and Costume Design, NIIAMAR's brand flourishes as the designer is driven by a passion for creation, design and inclusion. His credo (attributed to his favorite writer, James Baldwin) is "the world is before you and you need not take it or leave it as it was when you came in."
