Job Details

Playful, happy and above all else, colourful – three words that perhaps best describe the eternally optimistic designer Mira Mikati and her vibrant collections... The designer’s kaleidoscopic ready to wear, accessories and collaborative capsules are the sort of instant mood-boosting items a world in crisis so desperately needs”

Claire Carruthers, VOGUE

Founded by Creative Director Mira Mikati in 2015 - Mira Mikati (the brand) has gained a cult following with street style starlets and style-savvy celebrities with its timeless silhouettes, dedication to colour, and tactile showcases. Collections of carefree-meets-cool designs span the realms of playfully gamine and candidly feminine—all while channelling inspirational undertones hatched from art world collaborations with personal idols like KAWS, Darcel, Jack Pierson, MR, and Javier Calleja, adventure-filled travels, and a resistance to the idea of sartorial conventionality. The infectious, whimsical spirit is reflective of Mikati’s own ultra-upbeat outlook on life.
