Summer Reads: Mimi Plange


One fashion designer that everyone’s buzzing about is MIMI PLANGE. Following a successful spring collection, her recent Fall 2013 presentation, inspired by the Victorian era, was also well received. Mimi is the Ghanian born, California girl known for fusing African and American elements for a modern and timeless style that has garnered Mimi fans like Michelle Obama and other high profile clients around the world. Mimi is also well-traveled and a voracious reader, so I asked her to share her summer reading list.
