"I HATE FASHION"
With those illustrious words, so began Phetnikone Nokham's career as a designer.
"Iwas a student at Massachusetts College of Art-and like most people witha creative heart and a logical mind, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.Painting and sculpting weren't really viable, so I "settled" on acareer in fashion."
What Phetnikone saw as a choice at the time turned out to be her calling.
Sincegraduating from Massart in 1997, her work as graced many a store andbody in the Boston area. Her fashions and accessories have beenfeatured at Greta Lux (Wellesley, Ma), Fire Opal (Brookline, MA), aswell as good (Beacon Hill), a Boston boutique Phetnikone helpedestablish in 2001 and managed for four years. Her designs are currentlyfeatured at Turtle in the South End.
Anevolving mix of elegance and individuality, her designs draw on a rangeof inspirations from classical paintings to surrealism and designerslike Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garcon. Every Phetnikone Nokham pieceis entirely handmade in her small studio in Somerville using eclecticmaterials and fabrics.
