Founder & Designer
In 2015 Mimi Wong founded Minan (mi-non) Wong because she was inspired by women that emulate strength, power, and integrity. As a 9 year old being raised in New York City she fell in love with the energy and knew she wanted to be a fashion designer. She applied for only one college, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and was accepted. As a senior, she was chosen as the only student to represent The United States in the UNESCO’s eco-fashion competition “Design 21” in Paris, where her designs were showcased in the Louvre. After 20+ years of experience, she still uses eco-friendly elements in her designs. Designing to encourage women to go above and beyond her daily challenges, she look to iconic women like Amal Clooney for inspiration. Recently, Minan Wong was accepted as one of the 24 brands in the FIT Design Entrepreneur mini-MBA program class of 2018.
