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. Still, none of that could prepare her for the media onslaught that occured after her friend Meghan Markle made her first public appearance with Prince Harry while wearing one of Nonoo’s shirts. 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.
“I am a big fan of molecular cosmetics and use her products religiously. I always use the face mask to help my skin when jet-lagged and dehydrated after a long plane journey.”
“This is the first thing I do every morning. I take 20 minutes before checking my phone to reflect and plan for the day ahead. It’s the only time I really take for myself each day.”
“Drinking hot ginger water adds a natural glow to my skin and is good for the digestive system. I also think it tastes delicious and is warming on a cold winter day.”
“I always work out in Sweaty Betty activewear. These leggings and their sports bras are just so comfy.”
“As sustainability is at the core of my brand, I hate plastic water bottles, but I realize how important staying hydrated is. BKR bottles solve that issue.”
“Whether I am listening to music while working out or taking a conference call while walking my lovely dog Thatcher, these headphones are absolutely essential.”
“Nothing beats a relaxing bath after a long day at work, and this is the best oil to soak away in.”
