THE MIMI FONG STORY
Ten years ago, we met Mimi Fong through a mutual friend at the opening of a new play. Although Mimi was born in New York and raised in Iowa, she had a love, through her father's family, for Asian silks. At first, Mimi simply wanted to make ties for her husband that weren't as "corporate" as what he was wearing and showed more of his creative side. That night at the theater she introduced her husband and the tie she made for him. We were impressed and encouraged her to produce more. The resulting collection, which Saint Laurie was the first to carry, was colorful, original and easy to pair with any color suit.
Mimi's ties are a blend of silk and rayon which gives the patterns greater dimension and the fabric greater durability. The blend also gives her ties a somewhat vintage appeal since the '40s was the decade that rayon ("artificial silk") was introduced. Her ties are also especially appropriate for weddings and other formal affairs so she expanded the line to include cummerbunds, vests and bowties. We've done many weddings where the groomsmen were outfitted in Mimi Fong accessories that coordinated with what the bridesmaids were wearing.
