I came across Nonoo a while back in Harpers Bazaar 'Girl Behind the Brand' segment, and immediately fell in love with not only the finely tailored and structured pieces from the collection, but the designer her self, Misha Nonoo. So naturally I was excited to see her as one of the ten finalists in this years CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, an annual competition which supports and funds the most promising design talents in the U.S.
Nonoo's designs are just as elegant and appealing as the designer herself. I love that she embodies the women whom she wants to see in her clothes. Nonoo initially launched a coat and jacket label, but incorporated more pieces into her later collections. I'm obsessed with the fabric prints and the intricate cuts that give her pieces such amazing structure and elegance. I've always believed that the best designers incorporate art into their pieces, and Misha does this perfectly with the abstract and floral prints in her pieces. It takes true talent to present daily wardrobe staples with such allure -I especially love that she incorporates and pairs together different materials and textures. You'll see exactly what I mean in her Spring | Summer 2014 collection pictured here.
Misha is definitely following the footsteps of past CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Alumini -Proenzo Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, Derek Lam, Georgina Chapman of Marchesa- just to name a few of the amazingly talented designers who have gone on to reign global fashion houses.
