Fe Noel a womenswear brand founded by Felisha “Fe” noel recently unveiled “Daughter of the Soil” Fe Noel Resort 2020 Look book. Inspired by the Caribbean Island Grenada, the brand notes
“Our woman is sensual, effortless and free, intentionally combining culture and glamour”. Like the billowing sails on a boat causing the Caribbean Sea, she is connected yet free. She carries the DNA of her ancestors and is the past, present and future. Her presence is felt without a word because nostalgia seeps from her pores. Sensual fluid and effortless.

Felisha “Fe” Noel is a Brooklyn-based designer heavily influenced by her Caribbean heritage and large close-knit family. The fashion designer beliefs that power is all women – an important attribute being herself a woman of color.
In her words
“Power is in all women. My hope is that when women wear my clothes, they can lean into that power.”
Her clothes always have a story to tell. In one of her previous collection with the help of Afro-Cuban American painter Harmonia Rosales from Chicago – she was able to shift the Eurocentric narrative around the Renaissance art trend.
According to her “Black women have always been erased from those narrative unless they were showed as slaves”
The brand has bagged major endorsement which includes a Vogue feature, Essence magazine, Bloomingdale [special Lion King Collection], Michelle Obama and Beyoncé wearing one of her designs.
