Designer Mimi Prober’s aesthetic vision integrates the artistry of the past and establishes a sustainable future through the reuse of antique materials to create modern handcrafted heirlooms.
The Mimi Prober collection is handcrafted using recovered fragments of antique lace dating from the 18th to early 20th centuries, natural and locally produced luxury fibers, as well as botanical based dye methods which have been uniquely developed into custom textiles that are organically designed, artisanal, and seasonless. Through a zero waste philosophy, each piece is created by hand with natural variation and one of a kind antique lace placement that highlights the individual history and story.
Expanding on this philosophy, the Mimi Prober ‘Metamorphosed Art’ fine jewelry collection is crafted using reclaimed sterling silver dating from the 19th to early 20th centuries, where each collection piece is developed organically into a modern sculptural form.
The Mimi Prober sustainable luxury atelier, ready to wear, and fine jewelry collections are produced in New York, partnering directly with local artisans and manufacturers.
Mimi Prober, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, has received several honors and acclaim for her brand concept and collection which has been recognized internationally and shown during New York, Amsterdam, and London Fashion Weeks.
