MEET THE DESIGNER:
Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Marimerce completed studies in Fashion Merchandising and Pattern and Fashion Design in Barcelona, Spain.
After arriving in NYC, she worked as a booker for Hunt Models and upon returning home, to the Island of Enchantment, she worked as Fashion Editor for Caras Magazine. Decalogue Boutique, a by appointment only retail outlet, was her next endeavor. Through her contacts at Decalogue and Caras, and her work in numerous commercial productions and music videos, Marimerce built an impressive clientele for her Fashion Styling Business. Her clients include internationally recognized celebrities and fashion focused socialites.
MIMA is the culmination of her many years in the fashion industry. Inspired by the inherent beauty and freedom of the bohemian chic lifestyle, her jewelry designs range from delicately simple necklaces to architecturally constructed and beautifully complex pieces, many incorporating diamonds and other fine gems. Each individual composition of hidden treasures is distinctive and intended to make you feel unique. Sold around the world, in stores such as Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Anthropologie and Free People in New York City, to Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and Saks Fifth Avenue in Abu Dhabi, this jewelry line was the foundation for MIMA’s lifestyle collection, a handmade, curated offering of garments, handbags, shoes and home decor, which is now available at MIMA’s Loiza street store in San Juan. - 12 hours ago
