About me / About business or organisation:
I am an upcycled womenswear designer.
I have been working on my collection MIA by Mia Nisbet which fuses recycled fabrics and traditional Malawian textiles to produce a collection that combines the richness of African textiles with western styling. The design concept is ethical fashion that not only unites two cultures, but one that is sustainable and designed to be wearable. This collection is produced in Malawi thus creating employment for the local tailors.
I am also working on Upcycling army surplus clothing to be produced in London.
