We’re celebrating Women’s History Month with the amazing fashion designer Mimi Plange—who recently made headlines in features covered in British Vogue and Coming 2 America.

Mimi Plange designed a stunning sheath dress featured in the April 2021 issue of British Vogue. Styled by the legendary French stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele and shot by Steven Meisel, model Achenrin Madit is photographed wearing a beaded Mimi Plange dress—hand embroidered from beads that Mimi collected on trips to Ghana, Senegal, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire.

In Coming 2 America, costume designer Ruth Carter selected Mimi’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 she’s been an active supporter and champion of numerous fashion policy initiatives—including the Fashion Innovation Alliance’s White House roundtable for creative entrepreneurs during the Obama Administration.

The April issue of British Vogue will be available on newsstands and for digital download on Friday, March 12. You can view Coming 2 America now on Amazon Prime.

We invite you to learn more about Mimi Plange and her designs at mimiplange.com.
