Is she the one who introduced Meghan and Prince Harry?

We know a fair amount about Meghan Markle – where to buy half her wardrobe, for one thing – but this time around it’s a friend of hers who’s caught our eye.

Bahrain-born fashion designer Misha Nonoo is a close friend of the soon-to-be royal, so we thought it was worth rounding up a bit of information on her.

Hey, if nothing else you might find a couple of items to add to your shopping card. Nonoo’s label has some winners.

Here’s how to get Meghan Markle’s cream coat in Dubai

She’s got an international background

 

Nonoo’s mother is English, her father is Iraqi, and she was born in Bahrain before growing up in London. She’s now based in New York.

Markle has worn her label

That crisp white shirt Markle wore to last year’s Invictus Games with Prince Harry? It’s a Misha Nonoo Husband Shirt, and you can grab one for US$185 (Dhs680). Looks like a new classic to us.

She met Markle in Miami 

And they bonded over dogs and women’s activism, the Evening Standard reported last year.

“We were seated next to one another at a lunch and we got along like a house on fire,” Nonoo told the paper. “She has the most remarkable and generous spirit. I aspire to be as philanthropic as she is, and to have as much of an impact as her.”

“Her greatest strength is her compassion for others,” Nonoo told Vanity Fair. “Much of the work she does is unseen by the public.”

It’s not confirmed that she introduced the couple…

But it does sound pretty likely. Nonoo knows them both, and when asked by the Evening Standard if she linked them up, she neither confirmed nor denied.

That kind of discretion will go a long way.

She pretty much only wears black and white

Check her Instagram – it’s all black, white and red. We respect anyone who commits to a strong aesthetic, to be honest.

Markle isn’t her only famous pal

You will have spotted Bella Hadid in that shot above, but did you know Nonoo is also friends with English singer Ellie Goulding and American it-girl Oliva Palermo?

Went maximalist this weekend.

The pics speak for themselves, really.

We’re thinking Nonoo will be invited to Markle’s May 19 wedding – and she’s sure to be well dressed.
