NYFW SS17 part 1: Noon by Noor
While I wipe away my fashion week battle wounds with lots of comfort food and an emergency trip to the Céline store (oops, it’s all on Snapchat), I wanted to walk you through my first part of the NYFW adventure. This year, I kept my motto “quality over quantity” at the shows too and made an effort to see the designers I was truly passionate about.
The first show that kicked off NYFW SS17 was Noon by Noor, two sisters from Bahrain, and they’re the first GCC brand to be invited by IMG to show in NYC. Dreamy pastel colors, and flowy silhouettes nonetheless left me craving for spring, and oh mind you it’s only fall in NYC. You can only imagine my fear for the winter, as this is going to our first one in a long time since our move from California.
The highlight of my NYFW this year has been the backstage experience. It’s a new point of view to see what happens behind closed doors, the order within chaos, and just being invisible watching everyone get ready for five maybe 10 minutes of show is a moment to remember. And let me tell you, it’s all worth it.
Hope you enjoyed the photos, thanks for reading. xx
