The Designer Behind the Brand: Mimi Plange.  She has a great story and good advice for anyone trying to break into any field, really. Inspirational. See blog here. What I like about her is that she used her background in architecture design to fuel her passion for clothes. And her hoe collection for Manolo Blahnik is pretty awesome too.

Sissi’s Notes: No use of Dutch wax material, but she uses very feminine silhouettes and is not afraid of color….my type of designers! 😉
