NŌA IS AN INDEPENDENT WOMENSWEAR LABEL FOUNDED IN SOUTH AFRICA. BORN OUT OF A DREAM TO BRING QUALITY, VINTAGE STYLE WITH A MODERN EDGE TO SOUTH AFRICA AND TO SUPPORT THE LOCAL SOUTH AFRICAN TEXTILE INDUSTRY.
MEET OUR FOUNDER
NŌA is an independent womenswear label founded in South Africa by me, Nicole Mienie. There are many reasons why I decided to finally take the plunge and launch NŌA- a proudly South African, female-owned womenswear label.
Over the years, my lifetime love of fashion, clothing shopping and the knowledge gained from my University degree in Clothing and Retail Management led me to finding many gaps in the South African retail market that I wanted to fill so that other South African women just like me can truly get the most out of parting with their hard-earned cash in exchange for their favourite on-trend clothing piece.
At NŌA our main goal is to create high quality, trendy pieces with the highest quality fabric and construction.
MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA
Every time you make a purchase you are choosing the type of society you want to create.⠀
One of NOA’s main goals is to ensure that we empower our local community and that is why our entire collection is made by skilled sewers right here in Johannesburg.
Our skilled sewers are the backbone of our brand and deserve to be paid well and fairly for their craft. Therefore you can rest easy in knowing that the price you pay for NOA is used to fairly contribute to the lives and well-being of all who had a hand in making your NOA piece.
We are so proud to be a South African brand and we are so grateful for your support.
