I am so excited to have my very talented friend, Misha Nonoo, featured on #FriendlyFriday! Misha and I have been friends for years and I came across these pictures from a shoot we did back in 2016 promoting her LIKEtoKNOW.it shoppable Spring/Summer line. Rather than doing a traditional fashion show, Misha realized before others that see-now-buy-now is what consumers were craving and led the movement in showing the current season’s collection.
If you have seen Misha’s designs, they are always so chic and classic. I am currently obsessing over her new personalized collection – the florence blazer dress is to die for.
If you had to describe the ‘Misha Nonoo’ woman in 3 words, what would they be?
Savvy, Entrepreneurial, Sophisticated
Where do you get your greatest ideas and inspiration for your collections?
I draw inspiration and ideas for my collections from my own life and when I created The Easy 8, I specifically thought about wardrobing the modern woman for every intention, both scheduled and spontaneous.
I love your new personalization element to your Florence Blazer Dress! Why did you decide to add this extra detail? Are you going to expand it to other designs in the future?
Originally, I started testing personalization on the Husband shirt, another beloved hero piece from The Easy 8 Collection. However, so many of my customers as well as myself are devoted to the Florence Blazer Dress, and an idea struck me to update the Florence Blazer Dress into a modern varsity/letterman jacket. The monogram can be shown when worn open as a blazer, or hidden when worn closed as a dress, so it is an incredibly versatile piece. My goal is to expand personalization to other pieces in the collection, so stay tuned…
If you had to wear one look for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If I had to wear one look for the rest of my life I would wear my Easy 8 Collection. I designed it with consideration for the woman on the go, who needs pieces that take her from her morning meetings to a nighttime gala, and everything in between. It has transformed my morning routine and now I cannot imagine my life without The Easy 8.
What is your favorite piece of your current collection?
The Florence Blazer dress is by far my favorite piece, which is why I decided to launch my personalized collection with it as the centerpiece.
