Innerform™ Content Contributors

Innerform™ is continuously updating a growing library of articles, videos, and podcasts from talented bloggers across the web.

Each content contributor submission must follow the Innerform™ guidelines that our audience values:

1. Avoid using the word “should”.

2. Avoid using “all or nothing” recommendations – words such as “always” and “never.”

3. Focus on effort, growth, learning, authenticity, vulnerability, and creativity – as opposed to achievement and success.

4. Each article on Innerform™ would ideally encourage a reader to expand their thinking about their life experience. We want people to feel inspired and motivated about what else is out there and the possibilities they have yet to consider.

If you have an idea for an article that follows the guidelines above, please feel free to submit it using our submission form

Nina Vartanian

Nina Vartanian is a Professional Costume Designer, has a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons The New School for Design and her MFA in Costume Design from NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Nina’s work is about collaborating, creating a show whether it is for Theater, Film, Dance, or Opera, it takes a team of people, coming together, then learning to communicate with each other, to make it all happen.  Even though every project is different, communication that brings collaboration is the commonality in every project Nina takes on.

“During my childhood I experienced a unique way to learn collaboration.  Half of my family, being Armenian, immigrated to this country from Iran. Cohabitating with people who do not speak the same language teaches you to understand people without knowing what they are saying. This gave me a strong passion to explore, and an approach to design that is focused on discovery.  I am always in search of new ways to communicate through my work.”

Nina’s work is unique, the end product of her process results in clothes, but the actual process to get there has very little to do with clothing.  Her work is inspired, and driven by people, and their stories.  Whether it is in a fitting for a theatrical production, or a fitting for someone’s personal life, Nina’s focus is creating a comfortable and empowering environment that leads to some kind of discovery. Out of the hundreds of fittings she has had, no one fitting has ever been alike; everyone has their own needs, their own paths, and their own perspective, and Nina’s passion is helping people find these magical moments about themselves.
