To close out fashion week, Fe Noel made its NYFW debut. The brand has continued to pay homage to the black experience in West Indian/African countries through its colorful pieces. “A Daughter Of The Soul” is what read on the show description that was left on each seat. The show started with a short film created by Itaysha Jordan, a longtime collaborator with ESSENCE magazine.
Felisha Noel, who is a Grenadian Brooklyn based designer and owner of the line has created a much-deserved buzz in the industry. Her fashion show was a family reunion of black industry insiders that have seen her growth from the start of her business. “It has been almost a year since we all went down to Grenada to shoot the Fe Noel look book. I cried when I saw it. That night I decided we have to do a show,” she said. Noel’s show was embedded in the Fe Noel aesthetic, colors. There’s not a hue the designer can’t take on and her precise shade selection correlates well with the shimmery melanin that eludes from black women.
