Q: What inspired you to start your brand?

A: I was initially inspired to start my brand because I noticed a need for elegant, classic basics in every woman’s wardrobe, including my own. Ultimately, however, I recognized an opportunity to run a fashion brand in an innovative, non-traditional manner that was more ecologically-sustainable, effective, and consumer-centric. With Misha Nonoo, I believe we design pieces that fit both the needs of women and of the changing world around us.

Q: What does walk like a woman mean to you?

A: To walk like a woman means to walk with pride, confidence, style, and a little extra feminine flair.

Q: Who is your style icon?

A: I have two style icons, they would be Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.

Q: What is your go-to uniform?

A: My go-to uniform is usually a cashmere sweater, a button down, a pair of great trousers or skirt, and a beautiful coat. I’m all about separates and I think that when you have great separates it allows you to have a lot of versatility in your wardrobe. When it comes to fall, I love a great pair of boots like the Zip Booties that I’m wearing now.

Q: What is your fall staple item?

A: My fall staple item is always a button down blouse in white, so it would be one like the Husband Shirt like I’m wearing today with gold hardware or we have a very special one coming out soon in a couple of weeks in early September that will also be one of my staples.
