Estelle Bailey-Babenzien has turned expressing herself into a steady gig (and a wildly successful one at that). This British-born, Brooklyn-based mother has a style that everyone wants a piece of. She’s half of the cult fashion brand Noah (the other half is her husband Brendon Babenzien, the former creative director of Supreme), having designed the label’s showrooms in NYC, L.A., London, and Tokyo. She also has a handful of high-profile clients (we see you, Adrian Grenier), and through her studio, Dream Awake, creatively advises them on everything from interiors to photoshoots to travel experiences. Although she was born in the UK, has roots in Ghana, and crisscrosses the globe on a regular basis, she makes her home in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, where she and Brendon are raising their equally expressive 4-year-old daughter, Sailor. Estelle invited us over for some hang time with she and Sailor (who just may have stolen the show, you be the judge) to talk the business of motherhood, fashion, and creative inspiration.
