Behind the Hair

Misha Nonoo and Tali Lennox

Hair by Joey George

Every year, the CFDA and Vogue select a group of emerging designers to participate in the Fashion Fund: a competition where the winner receives a grant to fund their growing business, a design collaboration with a major retailer and mentorships with industry leaders. Misha Nonoo was one of the 10 finalists from this year抯 competition, and we were lucky enough to work with her during her journey. Throughout the process, the designers are given challenges to complete by the Fashion Fund panel, including a design challenge. We were with Misha and her model muse Tali Lennox as they prepared to present Misha抯 Uniqlo design challenge garment to the judges at a special dinner at Anna Wintour抯 home on October 15th. Stylist Joey George created a sleek chignon to complement the trench coat design worn by Tali and gave Misha a simple blowout for the evening.
