Designer Temma Dahan-Newman of 9seed truly lives in her world. It’s a world where her suitcase is always packed and her passport is at the ready. Her designs are created for global nomads…those who always alight at the world’s most luxurious spots looking effortlessly chic.
Inspired by exotic locales –– the early morning dawn in Tulum, the afternoon surf breaks in Montauk and the sunset waves in Malibu, her simple, streamlined silhouettes are the very essence of modern dressing. You’ll find 9seed easily transitions from casual daytime to dinner-ready, with the addition of a belt, sexy sandals and a beautiful bangle.
Working with imported fabrics from India and Italy, always in 100% organic cotton,
her fabrics are selectively chosen to be the purest and the most lightweight. Creating with color, her keen eye discerns nature’s loveliest shade combinations. Her tie-dyed fabrics are custom-dipped to her specifications.
Temma’s inspirations include the International Jet Set scene of the Sixties, where gypset icons Marisa Berenson and Bianca Jagger set the style stage -- whether in Morocco, Thailand or Tangier. Add in the Euro-chic of Slim Aaron’s photographs, plus the looks of current style influencers like Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Oliva Palermo and it’s easy to see how she arrives at her signature look.
The recipient of the Gen Art “Fresh Faces in Fashion” award for her Temma Dahan handbag line in 2000, she has been featured editorially in Vogue, Allure, Elle, Glamour and Cosmopolitan magazines.
From the Hamptons to Ibiza, from Mustique to Miami – anywhere there’s sun, sand and sea – 9seed will be worn.
