GET TO KNOW THE DESIGNER
9TO9GIRLS, FASHION by EVODIE FLEURY 29.04.2019
I met Mimmi through the Power Ladies after-work and again at a HER drinks. I instantly warmed up to her, to her story, and to her passion for her brand and its mission. Kind and determined, poised and passionate - her personal journey and the story of By Van Der Crussen are deeply intertwined. In adolescence, she was treated as ‘waste’ and started believing that of herself — that she was ‘waste’. Instead of being supported, her ways of expressing herself were discouraged and beaten down. Through a remarkable personal journey she is now flourishing and her brand is about changing perspectives: how something treated as waste (her stunning pieces are made from surplus material from furniture factories) can become valuable. Her message is incredible. It’s about helping, inspiring and encouraging one another to be themselves.
And if you are anything like me - this interview will deeply move you and encourage you to seek meaning and love for yourself. This one is a longer one, but oh boy it is worth every word. So flag it, send it, share it - you will love it!
Now time for 9to9 Selfcare with Mimmi.
A JOURNEY IN A BOTTLE by JESSICA FERNANDA PRIETO 13.06.2019
It all started with a follow from fashion designer, Mimmi Van Der Crussen. After checking out her page on Instagram I noticed that her brand had much more than just a vision behind its story. Since I was in the area, I decided to send her a quick message regarding meeting her in person to get to know more about her and her journey. Little did I know, I would get such a rapid response from her and get the chance to take part in a behind the scenes photoshoot campaign for her new coat collection.
FROM DREAM TO REALITY IN ONE YEAR
Fra drøm til virkelighet på ett år 17.06.2019
Denne ukens #TGIM - bite size drop of motivation er med Mimmi Van Der Crussen.
For ett år siden hørte Mimmi min første episode med Tiril Refusm, gründeren av Oslo Raw, noe som resulterte i drøm katalysert ut i handling. Og nå, ett år senere så har hun lansert sitt eget klesmerke, noe hun har drømt om siden hun var 8, men aldri turt å gutse.
Hør noen ord fra Mimmi, hva hun gjør og hvordan det har vært.
