The Six: Bahraini label Noon by Noor shows off at NYFW

DUBAI: Bahraini womenswear label Noon by Noor showcased its latest line at New York Fashion Week on Thursday — here are some of our favorite looks.

Chic pleats

Demure, floor-length pleats and a rainforest green silk blouse with quirky details on the shoulder, this look is an ideal daytime option.

Back to black

The rouched sleeves and extended cuffs on this diaphanous blouse make for subtle yet gorgeous detailing in an otherwise run of the mill outfit.

Match point

Pairing coral sleeves with a voluminous tan coat worked so well it left us wondering why we haven’t seen more of this winning color combination over the years.

Classic coat

Camel colored coats have long been feted as the ultimate in sophisticated, working woman glamor and this flowing jacket is a wonderful update on the usually structured closet staple.

Fuss free

This structured yellow-and-black look wouldn’t look out of place on an edgy art curator — it’s stylish, bold and unfussy.

Coral on the catwalk

The Pantone Color Institute named “Living Coral” as 2019’s color of the year and the designers seem to have caught on — this cheerful look is young and fun, but remains true to Noon by Noor’s chic vibe.

Upon her arrival at the airport in the capital Rabat, the senior White House adviser was met by Morocco’s Princess Lalla Meryem, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita, and other officials. Trump and the princess sat on a sofa and talked for several minutes before departing.

Trump is visiting Morocco to promote the US government’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, which she spearheads. Launched in February, the program aims to help 50 million women in developing nations advance economically over the next six years.

The initiative has already been promoted by Trump during her trips this year to sub-Saharan Africa and South America.
