MIMI JUNG | Citizen Couture

MIMI JUNG | Citizen Couture

It was funny meeting Mimi for the first time because she felt that we might’ve met somewhere before. We started tracing back to possible mutual friends and the schools we went to see if there were any connections, but nothing. Then I get a tweet from her a few days later telling me the reason why I looked familiar was because of my resemblance with Alex Wong from the current season of “So You Think You Can Dance”. I get the “you look like someone I know” fairly often, but the most interesting one may have been my roommate’s brother claiming that I look like the Asian version of the R&B singer, Ne-Yo.

Besides the funny moments, I was initially struck by the jewelry she adorned from the neck down. She designed the piece under her jewelry collection “surrounded”, which recently debuted on June 20, 2010. It was inspired by a set of rare one-of-a-kind agate stone that she discovered during a recent trip to Hong Kong while lost in the Wan Chai district. The collection certainly looks very promising and I’m very excited to see this new designer go underway as she will continue to introduce various collections reflecting her ever-evolving personal style.

    I love how that jade necklace literally embodies her. Her bag is beautiful too; great colour and has that lovely worn-in look about it.

    It’s funny that you’re told that you look like Alex Wong because he’s a friend of a friend’s brother. Amazing dancer who was doing really well on the show before his injury, so definitely take that as a compliment!
