21 Mar How Belief, Determination and Drive Took Designer Mimi Plange From Fashion Outsider to Putting Clothes on Michelle Obama
Meet this week’s guest, Mimi Plange, Founder of Mimi Plange.
What you’ll learn
The life of a fashion designer isn’t all glitz and glamour. Mimi Plange has had to go through various different occupations to figure out how to run her own line. She says even though she thought some of her earlier jobs weren’t related to fashion, in the end, those experiences still ended up helping her as a designer, especially when it came to the business end of her brand.
How you’ll be inspired
Never doubt the power of belief. Fashion was such a huge influence on Mimi growing up that, as she recalls in this episode, she’d event test herself by guessing the designer behind clothes she saw in magazines based on the look alone. Despite people discouraging her from a career in fashion along the way, she knew she was going to find her way into being a designer – and she did.
What you’ll tell your friends
Um, how ridiculously humble and down-to-earth is that designer Mimi Plange who was on the Spirit of 608 podcast this week? I mean, her clothes have been on Michelle Obama and Rihanna. But she’d rather tell you about the way fashion and clothes can change your life and the new digital avatar she’s working on to showcase her brand.
