Minan Wong

Founder & Designer

In 2015 Mimi Wong founded Minan (mi-non) Wong because she was inspired by women that emulate strength, confidence, and integrity. 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 graduating she started her impressive 20+ year career in the fashion industry, where she designed for the likes of Donna Karan and Eileen Fisher.  Today, she designs clothing that encourages women to go above and beyond their daily challenges. Mimi finds inspiration from iconic women like Amal Clooney and the energy of New York City. Recently, Minan Wong was accepted as one of the 24 brands in the FIT Design Entrepreneur mini-MBA program class of 2018.
