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. 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 touch. The brand is about creating a unique and poetic experience through textile, photography, porcelain, art and design.
I am proud to support the local economy by working with independent workshops in the Montreal area in the production of the collections. An experienced cutter and seamstress thus contribute to Noémiah’s success. I take care of the tailoring and handmade to measure items myself.
I am environmentally conscious throughout my design and production. I choose organic and eco-friendly fabrics and produce quality-made garments that are not mass produced. Garments are entirely produced locally in Montréal, Canada. Noémiah supports local economic sustainability by engaging local labour throughout the entire supply chain. I use mostly natural fibers that are renewable and biodegradable, such as wool, cotton, silk and linen. All of my printed fabrics are made in a GOTS* certified facility and are azo free. I encourage my customers to invest in quality and durability over quantity.
Over the years, the line has been sold in prestigious and international reknown stockists, such Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters and has been seen in Vogue, Frankie, Fashion Magazine, The National Post, The Toronto Star, The Kit, Brides Magazine, Elle Québec, La Presse, La Fabrique culturelle and at the Mercedez Benz Fashion Brisbane Festival.
*The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is a worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria. The aim of this standard is to define internationally recognized requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from the harvesting of the raw materials through the environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling, in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
