My name is Noémie and I am the designer behind Noémiah. Recognized for its playful, feminine spirit, the brand embodies an effortless elegance that is full of wit and whimsy.
Offered since 2008, my feather jewelry line paved the way for the creation of clothing and accessories. Professional studies (tailoring and alterations, pattern drafting) allowed me to acquire the essential knowledge quality work. Internships with experienced Montreal based designers (Valérie Dumaine, Travis Taddeo) allowed me to improve my skills and gave me strengh to launch my first complete collection of prêt-à-porter in March 2015.
My inspiration is different for each collection; regardless of the season, what really gets my creativity flowing is the search for the perfect balance between minimal, clean cuts and feminine, playful touches. For each collection, I collaborate with illustrators to come up with exclusive illustrations that are printed or embroidered on my pieces. Creating printed fabrics is one of my favorite parts of the whole process – the possibilities are endless, and it’s exciting that my line can be so personal.
All my garments are produced in limited edition locally, in Montreal, Canada, which means a continued partnership with experienced manufacturers and a tight relation with them to produce best quality garments. Regarding fabrics, I use no synthetic fabrics, made from petroleum and non-biodegradable materials. Instead, the focus is on organic cottons, linen, wool, silk and bamboo.
