Three months shy of one year ago, Noa Sorrell, a charismatic 11-year-old artistic visionary was diagnosed with cancer, however her diagnosis didn't disrupt her blossoming creativity. Throughout the three months she endured chemotherapy, Noa found solace drawing and designing clothes that were vibrant, fun and cheerful. The Make A Wish America Foundation granted the budding designer her wish of bringing her designs to the runway at Art Hearts on Tuesday, October 6th. The emerging designer impressively conceptualized and created a 10 piece collection in only five weeks! In fact, Noa's designs opened up the Art Hearts Fashion show produced by Erik Rosete and ParkerWhitaker Productions at the Taglyan Complex that day, where she showed her looks modeled by five professional child models she personally hand selected. Sorrell's inspiration was 'springtime and sunshine'. She opted for the floral motif and pops of color - matching prints with solid colors with her particular line.
