Nine Muses is a Dallas based women's luxury label founded in 2013, by designers Jerry Matthews and Francesca Viamonte.
The duo met while studying at The Art Institute of Dallas where they collaborated on independent projects. The two later developed a desire to create their own custom design business which led to their first collection. The label's name came about by the duo being inspired by the goddess of clarification and memory, Mnemosyne and her nine children: the Nine Muses.
Additionally, every season, the duo chooses nine muses that serve as inspiration for their collection. Nine Muses Collection focuses on luxury women's sports wear and evening wear while incorporating high quality craftsmanship, unique design details, and an effortless sense of sophistication. Design inspiration is drawn from contemporary art, iconic women in history, and various genres of music combined with an emphasis on tailoring and contrasting proportions. The Nine Muses Collection customer is bold, sophisticated, fashion-forward and tasteful, while maintaining a balance of simplicity and edge. She is confident and unapologetic about her outlook on fashion.
