Misha Nonoo Shifts Sales Strategy, Plans Snapchat Show NEW YORK, United States — In a strategic shift more than a year in the making, New York-based label Misha Nonoo has terminated its wholesale relationships and will sell exclusively through Mishanonoo.com, which re-launches on August 23. Previously, direct-to-consumer sales made up less than a third of the company’s overall revenue. To support the strategy, Nonoo is embracing Snapchat in lieu of a live presentation at New York Fashion Week — a similar approach to her Instagram-based “insta-show”, which took place one year ago. On September 7, 2016 at 10am EDT — her slot on the official calendar — the designer will release a “live lookbook” on Snapchat, hosted on the handle of a yet-to-be-named editorial outlet. The show, like every post on Snapchat, will only be viewable for 24 hours. Assets, however, will be saved and used for marketing on other platforms.
