This page is going to be a celebration.  Although I would love to use this blog to talk about everything that I love about fashion, I feel that there is more I want to say.  Starting Mirame has been a soul journey for me and I would like to use this space to explore this journey, and that of other women as we travel on this journey of empowerment.  Women are many things...we are daughters, sisters, mothers, friends.  We are dreamers, we are risk-takers, we are multi-taskers, we are the glue that holds many of our families together.

I would like to start by saying that I am a woman who has decided that I can be many things.  I am dynamic and ever changing.  I am commited to traveling on the road of growth, of challenge as I move toward realizing my dreams.  It is a delight to have the opportunity to share this journey with all of you.

Part 1 :  It Begins

In December of 2010, yet another amazing job in the fashion industry had come to a close for me.  The business is tough, and I had already seen many designers come and go.  I had seen contracts end even before the ink had dried up.  Looking around, I realized I had arrived at another one of those momentous and life changing moments, and I felt weary.  I wanted to create something for myself that was more everlasting.  I wanted to take all of the ideas that flooded my imagination with first light, and danced through my mind in the evening, and make them a reality.  In my mind, the best way to do so was to start my own project, my own 'baby.'  And thus, Mirame was born.

I took a leap of faith.  If you were to do the same, what would you do?
