Leonie Markhorst is the founder & style editor of NOA // NOIR. Born and raised in the Netherlands, she has also lived in Vienna and Vancouver, and is currently based out of Berlin.
While she naturally gravitates to a monochrome & minimalistic (often menswear inspired) style, Leonie can’t help but fall for more feminine and colourful accents every now and then as well. She is not afraid to try something new and often embraces challenges - whether it is in fashion or her lifestyle. Having been an expat for a few years now, she knows what it’s like to be on the outside of that good ol’ comfort zone.
Being a balanced mix between an introvert & extravert, Leonie’s aesthetic reflects her personality well. Muted, but with a noticeable edge. It may be the ‘European flair’ that makes her stand out from the crowd - a calm confidence where effortlessness is key.
