MIMO Market began as an aspiration to create a boutique filled with special pieces that enhanced one's personal style. It’s incredible that now 2 years later, our dream boutique has become a reality. We're opening our first store in Miami’s art district, Wynwood. It’s an area where originality and creative expression is everywhere; from the walls of industrial buildings, to the poets who recite on the sidewalks, to the people who become live-art through fashion. This is what inspires us. Our name, MIMO Market stands for Miami Inspires Modern Originality.
We have traveled all around the country to carefully curate an assortment that will attract and appeal to you. Along with our extensive experience in the fashion industry, we have researched and studied our demographic intensively.
Influenced by the cultural Mecca and energy of our city. MIMO Market represents individuality and creation—core values that our company sets it's foundation upon.
Every person is rare and has a unique journey. You have the freedom and courage to express who you are. We are here to be a part of your journey in self-expression. You are fearless trailblazers and creators that stand out of the crowd. MIMO Market is your creative outlet—a place where you can find unprecedented designs that are special and affordable. As your buyers, we will enhance your individuality and allow you to be who you want to be...
As partners, we have financed the foundation of the boutique 100%. Investments such as inventory (that’s a big one), business licensing, and rent have all come from our own pockets. We’re a month away from launching and need your help to fund the last step… the interior space. Your contribution will help us purchase racks, tables, lighting, and allow us to hire contractors. As a token of our appreciation, we have variety of wonderful gift packages for your contribution.
Meeting at Florida State University in 2004, we began our partnership as friends with the mutual goal to graduate from the School of Fashion Merchandising. Upon graduating, we embarked on a journey to New York City, the fashion capital of America. There we excelled in the fashion industry by working for prominent magazines such as Marie Claire and MORE. After much growth, we furthered our careers by entering buying and marketing positions with major retailers, Bloomingdales and Chico’s FAS. Our work experiences have expanded and further developed our skills in styling, merchandising, marketing, and buying. Together we wish to share our influences, work experiences, and love for fashion and the arts by creating a business where community, inspiration, and creative freedom can be infused.

Risks and challenges
Our storefront is being built from the ground up and is currently in it's raw stages. As with any construction project, problems and delays may occur. To stay one step ahead of any dilemmas, we have devised strategic plans in order to stay aligned within our budget and timeline. With the support of the Kickstarter community, we will hire an architect and assemble a team of professional contractors to blitz the storefront space and expedite construction.
