NONIE creates Ready to Wear modern womenswear conceived and ethically developed in Canada. The collections are made with a tailored and refined aesthetic, with a twist of Eastern inspiration that is at the heart of the founder, Nina Kharey’s creative vision.
Launched to great acclaim in the Fall of 2008, the line was handmade in Calgary, Canada, Nina’s hometown and sold exclusively at Shear Luxury. It was featured in numerous media outlets and was most recently worn by the Duchess of Sussex (see photo below). After showing in both Calgary and Toronto, Nina stepped back to focus on starting her family and being a mother.
In 2014, Nina started designing her newest collection, Autumn Winter 2015 under the mentorship of Barbara Atkin, now former Fashion Director at Holt Renfrew. The collection introduces new directional style in ways that embrace and represent Nina’s own style and her love of minimalistic lines inspired by Indian menswear. Now, with a new team in Vancouver, NONIE brings a collection of bold and modern design.
ONIE was nominated for the Swarovski Emerging Designer of the Year Award - CAFA 2017
