Mimpikita SS16 LFW


Day 3 of LFW was coming to an end and I was slowly but surely loosing my voice. The good news was that I was turning into an exotic foreigner with a husky voice, which I realised was working to my advantage when one PR said “Oh! love you accent!” and another Sales Consultant said to me, referring to one of the designer’s influences, “If you were from the UK then you would probably know it, so you probably won’t have heard of it…” Does this mean people think I am not from the UK? Sweet! Can I choose a new nationality for the week? French…no, Dutch…No, I have it… SWEDISH! Yes! For the remainder of the week I will be Swedish…

Now bearing in mind I was now rasping my way through words, it was to my utter excitement and then dread, that I was asked by the amazing Pop Pr to interview on camera the Zulkifli sisters, Nurul, Mira & Syera, who launched Mimpikita in 2008 and have since transformed the company into an international fashion house with bridal and ready-to-wear collections. I had just seen the show and it was amazing! Beautiful fresh colours with very elegant almost bridal embellishments. There was something serene and very relaxing about the effortless designs of floating dresses, trousers and tops that were brought in the waist with a tie. The colours ranged from bright yellows and oranges to whites and creams. The slits and belting meant that the pieces would really transition well from day to night

It was of course despite the loss of voice, an incredible pleasure to ask them about their inspirations and techniques and to meet such creative geniuses in person. Known for combining the highest quality materials and impeccable craftsmanship with a modern design sensibility, they explained that they pieces are inspired from their time involved in their father’s architectural firm and in such are intricately composed and structured. Their embellishments are definitely a defining feature of their collection as they also create bridal wear and their designs made out of specially selected fabrics of the highest quality are very much for the modern elegant woman.

My Dad always tells us to be honest. When you’re honest in your art, there is a vulnerability to it and although there is a possibility that we might epically fail, we’re willing to give it our all…Every Collection and show that we put out- it always feels like it’s the first show all over again. We’re definitely feeling the jitters for London Fashion Week!”

You and me both Mimpikita…

I loved the whole collection, a real celebration of femininity, with the perfect materials and cut elegant looks on hot summer days! I could definately see them taking London by storm and I thought that I had actually spotted Jordan Dunn in the front row, but now I am not too sure if it was her… Celebrity Pap fail*

Unfortunately I don’t have any pics of me interviewing although it is on camera somewhere, but I hope you like the pictures that I took from the show! 🙂 Let me know what you think! Ouuu also, let me know if you had to change your nationality for the day which one would you choose and why?! 😉

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration.
