HEY HUNS i'M MIA, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS MIMI AFTER GROWING MY DEPOP SHOP 'MIMI'S GARMS' - WHICH STARTED IN MY UNI BEDROOM. 

I GREW UP ONLY BEING ABLE TO AFFORD FAST FASHION BUT I ALWAYS PREFERRED THE VINTAGE/RETRO STYLE CLOTHING THAT WAS OUT OF MY BUDGET.  I BEGAN TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL COST OF THE FAST FASHION INDUSTRY, SO THIS LEAD ME TO THRIFTING.  THAT'S WHERE THE OBSESSION STARTED AND MY CONCERNS AND CREATIVITY NATURALLY BECAME INTERWOVEN.  I USED MY SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION TO BEGIN GROWING MY SMALL SUSTAINABLE FASHION BRAND. I DREAMED OF MAKING VINTAGE FASHION JUST AS ACCESSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE AS FAST FASHION. IT'S NOT BEEN AN EASY RIDE, BUT I AM VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT DOING WHAT YOU LOVE FOR THE SAKE OF MENTAL HEALTH.

AFTER GRADUATING FROM A FINE ART DEGREE IN 2018,  I HAVE SINCE BEEN WORKING ON THIS BRAND INDEPENDENTLY.  I'VE HAD TO FACE A LOT OF CHALLENGES BUT I CONTINUE TO CHALLENGE THE FAST FASHION INDUSTRY WITH MY STYLING AND SELLING OF PRE-LOVED GOODS.  I LATER DECIDED TO START REWORKING AND CUSTOMISING TO FURTHER REDUCE WASTE AS WELL AS GET CREATIVE.

I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN ME ON MY JOURNEY, AND IF YOU SIMPLY WANT A CHAT OR YOU'RE INTERESTED IN COLLABORATING PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME!
