HELLO!! I'M MIA, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS MIMI AFTER GROWING MY DEPOP SHOP 'MIMI'S GARMS' - WHICH STARTED IN MY UNIVERSITY 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 ALSO LATER REALIZED 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 AS I SLOWLY BEGAN GROWING MY SMALL SUSTAINABLE FASHION BRAND. I DREAMED OF MAKING VINTAGE FASHION JUST AS ACCESSIBLE AND AFFORDABLE AS FAST FASHION.

 

AFTER GRADUATING FROM A FINE ART DEGREE IN 2018,  I HAVE SINCE BEEN WORKING ON THIS BRAND INDEPENDENTLY ALONGSIDE WORKING PART TIME.  NOW WITH OVER 500 5-STAR REVIEWS ON DEPOP, I CONTINUE TO CHALLENGE THE DETRIMENTAL FAST FASHION INDUSTRY WITH MY STYLING AND SELLING OF SECOND HAND GOODS. I LATER BEGAN IMPLEMENTING UPCYCLING AND CUSTOMISATION TO FURTHER REDUCE WASTE AS WELL AS UTILIZE MY CREATIVE FLAIR.

I WOULD ABSOLUTELY 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!
