Bijou Family: MimpiKita

As I walked up the stairs in Strudels Cafe Lucky Garden Bangsar during the last Bijou Bazaar weekend, I can't help but to be attracted to a stylish collection of products that are presented so beautifully, they ooze femininity and sophistication.

My first impression was that the owner of the corner must have travelled or is in the creative industry or was exposed to good designs since young, to have such taste. True enough, Nurul, who's father is an architect, is running her father's Kuala Lumpur branch and had studied in Brisbane, Australia. I had to be nosy and sent a bunch of questions for her to answer. :op

Tell us a bit about yourselves (name, location, affiliations, personal stuff).

We are sisters actually; Mira, Syera and myself, Nurul. We are from Johor Bahru. I'm now living with my hubby and my sister, Mira in Kuala Lumpur,while Syera is still studying in MMU, Melaka.

How did MIMPIKITA come about?

We've always dream of having a clothing line and home decor brand of our own.

The name came about while I was still studying, I did some research, came up with the logo and when I got back, I decided to start the business. I planned to have a boutique but I need to first build the brand and database of customers to make it viable to have the boutique and so we kicked start the business with an online boutique.

Apart from MIMPIKITA, what do you girls do?

I'm currently working with my dad, managing his company (KL branch) and when I do have some spare time, I'll work on the setting up of MIMPIKITA, find suppliers and making jewellery for MIMPIKITA. Mira is currently working at an advertising company in Kuala Lumpur.

In ten years I'd like to be ...

In ten years time, our vision is to become a leading corporate entity with 'MIMPIKITA' as a well known brand not only limited to clothing, accessories and home decor but also covering a range of home/office stationaries and gifts.

So, what are you waiting for? Do visit their links:
