Hello, I'm Lisa Hsieh, designer and founder of Mien.
I started this brand in 2015 when I was pregnant with my son. As a first time mom-to-be, I was frustrated by the lack of good clothing on the market that can be worn through pregnancy and beyond. I didn't like maternity wear on the market, with its unflattering styles, limited wearable time frame, and cheaply made quality. With over a decade of experience as an apparel designer and knowing something had to change, I created my first collection with just four versatile styles. They were designed to fit bodies from pre-pregnancy to postpartum and nursing; but not just for mothers and pregnant folks, the line was designed for all busy people seeking a more sustainable, comfortable, low maintenance, and flattering wardrobe for our ever-changing bodies. Working with the best local fabric mills, sewing houses, and dye houses in L.A., Mien's collection took off and grew from there.
