Why We ♥ NOORNOIR
OCSR girls love their basics. Don’t get me wrong, we love a great novelty piece as well, but with great basics comes endless possiblities. We are always on the lookout for the perfect basics and when we came across Noor’s line of high quality, effortless basics, we could not wait to share with all of you. NOORNOIR is an independent, contemporary clothing label that embodies the effortless beauty of Southern California. All pieces are designed by OC-native Noor Molvi and produced in Los Angeles. Take a look at some of her amazing styles, learn more about the woman behind the line, and don’t forget to shop!
How long have you been designing/making clothing and at what point did you decide to make it your career?
I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer since age 9. Fortunately for me, my mom is a trained seamstress. She taught me how to sew and would help me figure out how to make my designs come to life. In high school, I started working seriously towards my goal of becoming a designer. I was part of Nordstrom’s BP Fashion Board and interned at an apparel manufacturer. In college, I designed for UC Irvine’s student fashion shows and volunteered as a stylist for charity fashion shows. After graduation, I worked in the industry before deciding to finally pursue the dream of having my own line. So it’s been a long time coming but I learned so much along the way.
