The Mother of four is a champion of women, but before that she was the victim of sexual abuse as a child, a teen runaway, a homeless teenage mother, and a domestic violence survivor. However, the story of Mimi is not in her challenges, it is in her triumphs. She had a knack for seeing a design on the runway and being able to recreate it herself, for someone that was struggling financially, this was something that helped set her apart – career wise and in important meetings.
As her blog took off, her viewers were drawn to her hip and cool approach to sewing. In a field where sewing could seem archaic, she was making it fun and exciting. What started off as a hobby in her Los Angeles home in 2012, blossomed into an international brand with daily engagement of more than 2.1 million followers across her social media platforms, 12 million-page views annually, and 1 million unique visitors per month on her blog.
