Mimi Prober – New York Fashion Week September 11th 2017
Mimi Prober is a New York based designer and Fashion Institute of Technology graduate. Her signature collection is handcrafted using recovered fragments of antique materials dating from the 18th to early 20th centuries, natural and locally produced luxury fibers, as well as botanical based dye methods that 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 one of a kind placement that highlights the individual history and story. Prober is celebrated for her decorative and unique beading, embroidery, and lace designs. Integrating the artistry of the past and establishing a sustainable future through the reuse of antique materials to create modern handcrafted heirlooms. Honoring the hands that created the art. 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, farms, mills, and manufacturers. Prober will present her Spring Summer 2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on September 11, 2017.
