Behind The Seams: Boudoir D'Huîtres

Written By: MIM!Born in Ghana and raised in Southern California, designer Mimi Plange moved to New York after graduating with a degree in architecture from the University of California and spent eight years as a consultant to the fashion industry. Based in New York, last year she launched her first collection online. "I design clothes that accent the character of the woman wearing it," she says. "The clothes reflect the woman and have an appealing, understated glamour with the emphasis on substance and quality, rather than image."

Boudoir d'Huitres recently showed at Africa Fashion Week. Take a look at the making of the Boudoir D'Huîtres Autumn / Winter 09 - 10 collection.

Watching this video you would never know that the designer is from Ghana. Truth be told, I assumed the label was French based on the name alone. To each her own I guess.
