meet the muse. mimi orere.
2. pre-loved fashion. why is it important to you?
i have been a lover of vintage and pre-loved fashion since my early teens. as a young, shy woman, knowing that i was wearing one-of-a-kind clothing, gave me the confidence to explore my creative eye.
3. role models. who are the brands or individuals pioneering the movement towards more sustainable futures that are inspiring you lately?
4. changing more than outfits. how are you applying eco-friendly awareness into your lifestyle?
i was born and raised in london and respecting the planet was part of my upbringing. sustainability is a huge part of my identity and the fashion industry’s global supply chain is one of the most harmful to our planet right next to the airline industry. it’s wasteful, and it’s polluting our beautiful planet. i would prefer not to add to the problem so i found a way to satisfy my desire to consume, while still being able to protect mother earth. i shop sustainability-focused brands and utilise platforms like worn. to further extend the life cycle of luxury goods.
5. we love your fashion sense. what style advice can you give to our worn. readers interested in buying better?
with every look, start off with one single piece that you want to use, and then style around that. i like statement pieces a lot, especially one-of-a-kind ones. i definitely gravitate towards items you most likely have never seen before, and will most likely never see again.
