How the fashion designer beats jet-lagged skin

On top of being a 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist and member of the exclusive club of Forbes’ 30 under 30 listers, Misha Nonoo’s eponymous fashion line received widespread recognition when it became the first to debut a collection exclusively on social media

Markle is exactly the customer she designs for; a powerful and confident yet extremely busy woman who “works as hard as she plays.” Nonoo herself is familiar with this nonstop lifestyle, whether she’s designing her collection in New York or flying to London to attend not one but two royal weddings in 2018. Still, she makes time for herself: “As a woman constantly on the go, having a balanced life and keeping active is so important to me.” Below, the eight essentials that keep her at her best.
