NOIR is an African inspired ready-to-wear fashion brand that is defined by style and not a culture. Founded in January 2014, by Creative Director Ndeyfatou Ceesay, Noir is a mixture of bohemian chic trends, incorporating intricate West African techniques in the detailing.
Using three of such techniques; embroidery, beading and patchwork locally known as 'Bai Faal’ in Gambia, EMBEADED is the name of our Africa Fashion Week London collection. These techniques add a subtle yet bold touch to each of the pieces. The 3 main colors of this collection despite the Ankara detail are Black, White and a very rich shade of Red.
