About Mimi Shim
Born in South Korea, adopted and given new life by a Denver family, grew up, and lived in cities around the USA, fulfilling a dream of working as a professional fashion designer. Chicago > Los Angeles > New York City > and back around to Denver.
After a 12 year apparel / sweater / accessories design career, I’m putting my artistic and sewing skills in the forefront. From creating custom heirloom garments and quilts, to reviving your closet with my “altered closet service”, and creating an ongoing capsule collection of curated goods.
Currently residing in Denver, CO with husband Zach, son Oliver, and Clio the cat - I live for… lazy cozy days at home with my loves, homemade pasta and red sauce, and learning about outer space and everything science, the human state, and this crazy world that we are living in.
It used to be that people would fix and repair things. Today, we live in a disposable world where we buy things knowing that it’s not going to last forever, or it’s merely for single use. We expect less from the things we buy, for cheap monetary value, but we are paying a fortune by filling the Earth with unnecessary waste from plastics to fabrics, and rendering the only planet we have to live unlivable. So, I guess you can say that it’s my life’s mission to do what I love to do responsibly as possible, no matter how small the gesture, every moment of my life.
