Alumna Audra Noyes, designer and owner of AUDRA

At SCAD, students develop the skills and style they need to excel in fast-paced workplaces and prestigious roles. Alumna Audra Noyes (B.F.A., fashion, 2010) was personally recommended by André Leon Talley to train under fashion designer Alber Elbaz at French fashion house Lanvin. Noyes combined her SCAD education with her experience at Lanvin and John Galliano to create AUDRA, her line of luxury women's clothing.
