Mimine Ag is a luxury Couture brand based in London who recently launched their first Ready-To-Wear collection. The brand main mantra is to use Haute couture techniques to provide a perfect fit and fine tailored pieces for all figures. In a society where women feel pressure to look a specific way, we design pieces that enhance sensuality and confidence. Our collections are mainly tributes to women’s empowerment. The Mimine Ag woman does not try to fit in the society she lives in; she makes her own statements through the way she dresses and behaves.
