The Brand: Mimi Plange. Based in NYC. All pictures below courtesy of Google Image search.
The IT Factor: Feminine silhouettes with lots of funky lines.
The Designer Behind the Brand: Mimi Plange. She has a great story and good advice for anyone trying to break into any field, really. Inspirational. See blog here. What I like about her is that she used her background in architecture design to fuel her passion for clothes. And her hoe collection for Manolo Blahnik is pretty awesome too.
Country of origin: USA (she grew up in California) but her parents are originally from Ghana
Website: Mimi Plange
Where to buy: Could only find her clothes on ebay…anyone knows where to purchase?
Sissi’s Notes: No use of Dutch wax material, but she uses very feminine silhouettes and is not afraid of color….my type of designers! 😉
Yes am still sewing…This month, am working on a long sleeved dress with a pretty red and white fabric. Unfortunately, at the time of this post, I still have to attach the sleeves to the top of the dress. However, am running late on posting, so below are pictures of my progress and I shall update with the finished dress once completed!
Some outfit ideas for this week. Oldies from Boden, J.Crew, H&M and Gap. I will be updating links later today. The bright salmon-colored tuxedo (grosgrain ribbon)shirt will be reviewed next week 😉 Let me know which outfit you like best.

The IT Factor: For their Spring Summer 2015, the fashion house went for over the top and 3-D effects. I like the use of the Dutch wax prints to create illusions of floating flowers; however, the designs are so over the top, I wonder who can wear them in everyday life…I loved the simpler cuts of the Fall 2015 line instead. Sharp, colorful and elegant.

This week, I found out this boutique, Sapelle, London-based but they seem to be shipping in US as well. If you are interested, take a look at their website. My favorites below.
