Meet Mimi- the Milliner
Based in Adelaide (South Australia), Mimi is the certified milliner and creative force behind Mimi-Jane Millinery.
With both of Mimi's grandmothers having dabbled in millinery, it was only a matter of time before Mimi fell in-love with this traditional fashion form.
From contemporary racing and fashion hats and headpieces to intricately beaded and feathered bridal headwear, Mimi produces a range of ready-to-wear millinery each season and collaborates with clients year-long to create custom millinery.
Lovingly designed and meticulously handcrafted in her millinery studio in the heritage Epworth Building in the Adelaide CBD, Mimi uses a variety of luxurious mediums and textures, such as pearls, crystals, feathers, lace and leather, to create her ready-to-wear and custom designs.
Contact Mimi if you have any questions about any millinery that is featured on this site prior to purchase or if you would like to discuss a custom order.
