Hair bands not only provided us with sounds, but with amazing sites. I wonder how much time it took them to achieve the height of their hair?! I also wonder what products they used. Aqua Net anyone?Read More

Do you know who made your clothes?
This week marks the four year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. 1138 people were killed and many more were injured on April 24th, 2013. The building was constructed with substandard materials and in blatant disregard for building codes. Despite this, factory owners urged workers to continue their duties. Bangladesh is the world’s second-leading exporter of clothing, trailing only China. Many people still work under these conditions today.
This tragedy could have been prevented if more ethical working conditions were maintained. As a brand, we vow never to work with suppliers that subject their workers to these conditions. Want to learn more about how your swimwear was made?...watch our video as we take you behind the scenes in New York City.
Mirame is a New York based brand. The brand is influenced by multicultural voyages. After all, New York is a microcasm of the world.
We were so excited to take the collection to Norway, for Fashion Night Out. Mirame represented sexy one piece swimwear and full coverage bikinis for girls of all sizes. Metallics are a great choice for your next vacation.
Here are some new tunes for your weekend

For your listening pleasure while you wait on those holiday shopping lines.
Each month we release a new mixtape with our moods and inspirations. As Autumn takes over, we introduce some new tracks that take us inward while still keeping us afloat on the late summer clouds.
1) Where are you from? Where do you spend the most time now?
I am from Northern Westchester in New York and I currently live in Southern Westchester. For some reason I have not been able to leave Westchester’s borders! I work in the Financial District, so naturally I spend a lot of time in Manhattan.
2) What is your profession? What do you love best about it?
I am an Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Officer. In my role I perform investigations to determine whether transactions stem from illegal activity. I love working in Anti-Money Laundering because I get to find and report the bad guys!
3) What do you hope your work contributes to the world?
Money laundering activity in this day age has no borders. Illegal activities such as drug dealing, human trafficking, and illegal arms dealing are intertwined and have global impact. I hope that my work helps save or better the lives of those impacted by these crimes.
4) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I am in a good place in my life but there are a still a lot of things that I want to accomplish. There is a part of me that enjoys the hustle but I do look forward to a time where I can feel the calm of having achieved most of my goals (but I will never be finished because there are always new goals to be made). In another ten years I see myself in a loving marriage, with a flock of children and a home. In ten years I see myself healthy, happy and in love with life.
5) What is your favorite beach destination?
Such a hard question because I love the beach. I do not think I ever met a beach that I did not love. The beach I just went to in the Dominican Republic was gorgeous. But there was something about this beach that I went to in Barcelona, Spain that made me feel like I had just come home…

HEAT WAVE MIXTAPE: EARLY SUMMER EDITION
We love summer - obviously. For the latest addition of the mixtape, we put together a collection of songs to chill to. Whether you are at a BBQ or cruising with your windows open, these tracks will keep you feeling good.
Welcome to our new feature, #MirameMuchacha. Each month we will highlight a woman who you can't help but notice. She works hards and shines while doing it. Read below to find out more about our first Muchacha.
Volume one features Colombian born fashion stylist Lina Bracky.
Where are you from?
I am from Bogota, Colombia and a proud dual citizen. I came to the US as a teenager. I spend most of my time in Greenwich, CT where I reside, and some play time in NYC whenever I can. As for my vacation time, I love Europe and am working on visiting the countries on my bucket list. So far I’ve made it to Germany, Spain and UK.
What is your job and what do you love the most about it?
I am a fashion stylist but also act as a creative director in the shoots I produce. As a stylist I love enjoy the whole process, especially when there is a major transformation involved. To make someone over from their regular beauty to an enhanced level that displays both their physical and internal qualities is a joy. When working on photo-shoots, I not only style the model(s), but sometimes also act as the creative director; doing so means coming up with the story line for the shoot – which can be challenging, especially if budget is low, or none (cross-collaboration) – that is when creativity must kick in high gear. It can be a very stressful process, but good stress if that makes sense.
What do you hope to contribute to the world?
I hope my work contributes opportunity to the world. I have worked many times in cross-collaborations, and although that isn’t the long term goal, the goal is to help promote talent. Photographers, designers, models – (even want to be models who have talent), makeup artist, videographers, etc. they all start somewhere and it can be a long and arduous road, but some have a more difficult time than others and not all achieve success.
As a freelancer and a startup I know how hard it is to find opportunities. I have seen so many gifted individuals on the streets of NYC, hoping to collect enough money to buy food, it is heart breaking. I have many goals in my life, the main one is to affect this world, to leave a very strong and recognizable foot print and to inspire others to do the same. One of my intentions is to gather the troops if you will, and to help these people find a source where chances can be given to them, so long as they are willing to try hard and passionately. No one works for free, I don’t, but when starting up a little investment comes along the way.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I see myself traveling the world alongside my sister who is a designer, learning and adapting ideas from other cultures and interpreting them into our own label and fashion brand.
What is your favorite beach destination?
Ah favorite beach destination – not a fair question. Currently my favorite is the Hamptons – beautiful clear ocean, but as a former Floridian, I will always say Bal Harbour. Anytime I visit Florida that is where I go. Funny to see this question, my bucket list contains a list of countries whose beaches I would like to explore: Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Maldives, Benidorm, Positano, etc…. ask me again in 10 years :).
We loved our mixtape and have recently been searching for a new home for it since our favorite site, Tapely shuttered its virtual doors. We found that home in 8tracks. Our latest addition of the tape is called Spring has Sprung and celebrates the positive mood the good weather is imbuing on us all. Get your swimsuit ready and dream up your next holiday!
