"I have a lot of women surrounding me… that mentor me, help me, support me and really believe in me. I wouldn’t be able to choose one because I have an army of women around me but it’s just amazing to learn from each other, to exchange ideas and to partner with them."
Noëlla was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo to a Cypriot father and a Congolese mother. Following the passing of her father at the age of 5, and with her mother lacking the resources to look after her, Noëlla was sent to live with relatives in Switzerland. After a 13-year absence, Noëlla decided to return to her homeland of the DRC and to meet her mother. After witnessing firsthand the poverty and lack of opportunity for women in the country, Noëlla promised herself that she would one day make a difference. After receiving a degree in business management, Noëlla was discovered and chosen to appear in a campaign for Agent Provocateur. A career as an international model then followed, which took Noëlla from the pages of fashion magazines like VOGUE, ELLE and VANITY FAIR to a global stage. As she travelled the world, she discovered a platform from which to share her passion for human rights. In 2007, Noëlla founded MALAIKA, a non-profit grassroots organization that empowers Congolese girls and their communities through education and health programs.
These oversized round sunglasses from the LINDA FARROW collection draw inspiration from the 1970s heritage of the brand. A finely crafted 22 carat light-gold plated titanium framework runs along the inside of the lenses into sleek tapered temples. The style is fitted with feminine pink gradient lenses contoured with a hand painted rim inside the lens groove to create an contrasting outline. The frame is finished with adjustable nose pads for a tailored fit.
