Biya & Johnny Was

Designer Biya Ramar radiates passion as she discusses art, graphics, textiles, tribal artifacts, history, and world cultures; her design inspirations. In 2000, she introduced her eponymous line of eclectic clothing, characterized by a timeless romanticism. Embroidered mesh, velvet, stonewashed silks, and cotton voile fabrics lend themselves to supple, elegant silhouettes. Inherent in the BIYA collection are the JOHNNY WAS brand's most opulent statement dresses, which can traverse ballroom to garden party to wedding. BIYA's draped wraps and intricately adorned tunics address the casual lifestyle of the bohemian sophisticate.

The Fall 2014 BIYA Collection plays with print and texture. The sophisticated contemporary customer will find flowing silk pieces in all-over tonal placement prints, geometric tribal embroideries on cotton voile blouses, and lace and mesh dresses from midi to maxi. For the colder months, BIYA's intricately embroidered coats and cardigans in materials like Sherpa and linen are sure to make a statement. The color palette is subdued, with greys, blacks, blues, and the occasional pop of burgundy red. BIYA's signature slouchy cuts and luxurious fabrics make this line a must-have for Fall
