NIMPH (from English nymph and Spanish ninfa) is a collaborative project created by Patty Mañá in her exhaustive search to unleash and materialize her creativity and impulses while continuing to meet what the fashion industry demands today.
It was born in a complicated social scenario in which the market asks for responsibility, sustainability, austerity, and timelessness, but it refuses to put fantasy aside.
NIMPH gives a second life to waste fabrics and secondhand clothing. It aims to transform the old and forgotten into unique garments and objects of desire, framed within the “Dirty Design”, a concept developed by Mar Janne Van-Helvert. Materials and fabrics are carefully selected from markets, secondhand shops, deadstock warehouses, and even friends’ closets, to lately mix and match through deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction processes, giving rise to a collection of unique and fresh pieces.
The NIMPH creature is someone who lives outside the Hetero-normative world and distances themselves from what mass media and trends dictate.
This creature is an individual whose taste is built on ideals of sustainability, collaborative practices, underground culture and emerging design. Committed to the current moment, NIMPH works independently from the traditional fashion calendar and launch capsule collections throughout the year.
Ultimately, NIMPH is a group of young creatives led by Patty Mañá that aims to celebrate imperfection, the richness of the creativity on a fantasy imaginary utopian world inhabited by elves, nymphs, and mermaids.
