Designers Misha Nonoo and Joy Cioci are hardly newcomers at this point, but both have a big week coming up. Cioci is launching her first eponymous collection with a presentation at Lincoln Center on Friday, while Nonoo is adding ready-to-wear to her already extensive jackets-only collection on the same day. Thumbnail image for Misha Nonoo.jpgOn the eve of her Fall 2011 presentation at Milk Studios, Misha Nonoo is busy focusing on good karma. "I'm being extra nice to everyone else and hoping that comes back. I'm sending out really good energy and vibes to everyone." But she does add that while in the midst of preparing, the only friends she's spoken to are those that have BBM. "It's like if you're not on bbm you're banned." Sorry iPhone users.

The designer has yet to unveil her new offerings, which now comprise a full line of dresses, trousers and blouses, but she does reveal that the pieces are "classic, elegant, eccentric, extragavant and British." And usually a worrier, Nonoo assured WWD she hasn't gotten there yet. "But we'll see how that goes for the next couple of nights."

Joy Cioci, on the other hand, said she's up at night worrying about "everything" -- not that sheJoy Cioci_headshot.JPG has much to be nervous about. At the age of 26, Cioci is no stranger to the industry. The designer has worked with Olivier Theyskens and Tom Ford, and was the former creative director at WiNK. Already touted as one to watch this Fashion Week, Cioci describes her collection as "personal" and "sexy and romantic."
