LOOK GOOD. FEEL GOOD. DO GOOD. BE GOOD.

OUR ORIGIN STORY

OUR ORIGIN STORY


Chasing your dreams isn’t easy. Doing what you love requires sacrifice and hard work. But, being your own boss is a wonderful thing and the feeling of accomplishment that comes when you’re not only allowed, but encouraged to let your creative juices flow, that’s priceless.

Starting my own business was the toughest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Being a mother can be challenging at times, but being a female entrepreneur is an uphill battle. Small business is a passion of mine and many others. Shopping small doesn’t mean you aren’t doing your part to contribute to the health of our country’s economy, shopping small means you care about more than most.  

You care about where your clothes came from.


You care about who made them.


You care about your impact on the environment and

most importantly,


You care about supporting other women in business.

OUR WHY

When I’m asked to describe my brand I often share that Mien makes clothing that reflects our modern lives.

It’s a simple statement but the story behind it is complex. My design inspiration is the beauty around me and the humans that inspire me. I strive to create clothing that is flattering, comfortable and easy to wear. I want my Mien community to love the fit and color of my pieces the way I do because I design for them.  

OUR DIFFERENCE

he cycle I choose to take part in with Mien was built off of the core value of look good, feel good and do good. Our GOTS- certified organic cotton fabric not only feels good but it is good for the environment.

My custom fabric is knitted right here in my hometown of Los Angeles. Dying and sewing of every Mien piece is done locally and I know the people who make my product on a first name basis. This, the cycle I choose is because I want to provide my customers with a quality product they can depend on but more than that, I want to design a line for women, like me, like you, like us rooted in the desire and need to hold onto and celebrate our identity and creativity not matter where we are in our life cycle. Life is a cycle of ups and downs, good and bad. Fashion is also a cycle - design, production, distribution. 

OUR COMMUNITY

A great dress, jumpsuit, jacket its good for the soul. When we feel comfortable we feel we safe. When we feel beautiful our confidence shines. And, when we feel unstoppable, well we become unstoppable. 

 As a woman, maintaining your identity is paramount. Whether you’re starting your career, starting your own business or starting a family Mien’s mission it to dress you for any and every moment so you can take life head on no matter what that means for you.
