NOH NEE: Bavarian Dirndl & African Prints

Turning something old and traditional into a cool and hip design

Behind the label NOH NEE are the sisters Marie Darouiche and Rahmee Wetterich. Born and raised in Cameroon they now live in Munich, Germany.

Inspired by their heritage and their new home in Bavaria, they started combining African cloth with the traditional Bavarian dress Dirndl: "The mix of different cultures and ideas - what we call 'color mix' - is the main essence of our designs and is what appeals to our global audience".

NOH NEE has succeeded in making something old and traditional cool and hip. I would have never considered wearing a Dirndl before, it was just way too dowdy for me. But I would totally wear one of these NOH Nee Dirndls.

How about you? Would you wear an African Prints Dirndl?
