Hi, I’m Lisa, the founder and designer of Mien. 
Mien is French for “Mine”, le mien. I chose it because it is simple and beautiful visually. Also, it represents the mother and child relationship that inspires me, because we’re cut from the same cloth. I created this collection to reflect the world that I want to see. It’s all about community - friends, families, partners in life and business, women and children. We take care of each other and our environment. In addition to growing my line, I want to expand the community around us.

I’ve worked as a designer in the apparel industry for 13 years. When I launched Mien in 2015, I was pregnant with my son, Grey. In a way, he was there with me from the very beginning. Now, motherhood is my biggest source of inspiration. I work with small factories near my Long Beach studio which means I can be there every step of the way. In addition to selecting the fabrics and the dyes, I handle the website design, graphic design, social media, marketing, some photography, and pretty much everything else in between. When you place an order, I am the one that packs, ships and answers any questions. 

I appreciate every order that comes through, whether it's here on Mien's website or in person at one of our popups. I'd love for you to keep in touch and follow my journey on Mien's Instagram @mienstudios. I am thrilled to have you along for the ride. 

Thank you.
Lisa Hsieh
