How this 22-year-old designer got featured by Vogue

SFD127 How this 22 year old designer got featured by Vogue

This is my second interview with Noémie Jouas, a young designer who started creating bespoke dresses from her college housing in small-town Scotland. Since I spoke to her last, she’s had her first runway show, adapted to the pandemic, and gotten her work featured by both Teen Vogue and Vogue.

You can listen to the first interview right here!

In this interview (which you’ll love), we will cover:

  • How Noémie scrapped together her business with almost no resources
  • What it was like putting together her entire first collection in just one month
  • How unconventional materials save on costs & increase her creativity
  • How Noémie turned garbage into a gown that got featured by Vogue–twice!
  • What she’s learned in the past year and a half about fashion and life
  • What this ambitious designer plans to do next
  • And more!
