Meghan Markle’s BFF Misha Nonoo praises her as a ‘wonderful’ friend & the inspiration to her latest maternity line

MEGHAN Markle’s close friend fashion designer Misha Nonoo has opened up about her “wonderful and thoughtful” royal pal. 

Pregnant Misha, 33, who is launching her first maternity line, said that working with Meghan, 38, was so “easy”. 

The two friends collaborated on Meghan’s collection that she launched with SmartWorks, which launched in September 2019. 

Speaking of their time together, Misha called Meghan the “the ultimate professional” and was very “considerate” of the people she was helping with the collection.

She told Femail: “It was such an ideal, incredibly easy collaboration. It was, from start to finish, wonderful, thoughtful, considerate, as is she.”

The pals met through a mutual friend when Meghan was starring in Suits, and they got on like a “house on fire”. 

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Misha said of Meghan: “I love her to death. She is the coolest girl in the world.”

New York-based Misha’s new collection includes pieces inspired by her signature Easy 8 Husband Shirt, which Meghan famously wore during her first official outing with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games. 

The maternity line, in collaboration with celebrity maternity brand HATCH, includes a £168 tunic top and a £220 belted dress.

Misha said of the collection that she got the idea when she fell pregnant with oil tycoon husband Michael Hess, who she married in Italy last year. 

She felt that she didn’t want her style to change during this time, and she wanted to design pieces that were versatile for work and also for relaxing at the weekend. 

Misha said she also was conscious of sustainability, and aimed to provide garments that could be incorporated into her postpartum wardrobe too. 

In 2013, Misha was named on Forbes' exclusive 30 under 30 list.

She became the first fashion designer to debut a runway collection on Instagram in 2015, and exclusively shared her Fall line on Snapchat the following year.

Last month, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together in a holiday snap taken in Mexico.

In September, Meghan and Misha were pictured hugging at the launch of the Smart Works charity clothing collection.
