Weâ€™re celebrating Womenâ€™s History Month with the amazing fashion designer Mimi Plangeâ€”who recently made headlines in features covered inÂ British VogueÂ andÂ Coming 2 America.
Mimi Plange designed a stunning sheath dress featured in the April 2021 issue ofÂ British Vogue. Styled by the legendary French stylistÂ Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and shot by Steven Meisel, modelÂ Achenrin Madit is photographed wearing a beaded Mimi Plange dressâ€”hand embroidered from beads that Mimi collected on trips to Ghana, Senegal, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Cote dâ€™Ivoire.
InÂ Coming 2 America,Â costume designer Ruth Carter selected Mimiâ€™s hand-painted leather skater dress from her Unfashion collection. The dress was worn by actress KiKi Layne.
Mimi has received international acclaim for her work in the fashion industry, and sheâ€™s been an active supporter and champion of numerous fashion policy initiativesâ€”including the Fashion Innovation Allianceâ€™s White House roundtable for creative entrepreneurs during the Obama Administration.
The April issue ofÂ British VogueÂ will be available on newsstands and for digital download on Friday, March 12. You can viewÂ Coming 2 AmericaÂ now on Amazon Prime.
