What started as a hobby, became one woman’s entrepreneurial dream come true – the world’s #1 online sewing school,Sew It! Academy, a Podcast, a fashion blog (MimiGStyle.com), a YouTube Channel with 294k subscribers and a partnership with the world’s leading sewing pattern company, Simplicity. Mimi G is a go-getter and is the go-to mentor for Latina women and her millions of followers across social media, when it comes to building their careers.Being a victim of sexual abuse, a teen runaway and a homeless teenage single mother, Mimi G began blogging and posting her creative sewing projects and patterns as a way to escape the stresses of her everyday life. For someone that was struggling financially, this was something that helped set her apart. It wasn’t until she posted a regal maxi skirt that her blog truly took off. The moment that readers took their first look at the pattern, design, color and envisioned themselves wearing it, is the moment that the blog had thousands of order requests. While Mimi G didn’t have the manpower at the time to create and fill all the orders, she was determined to make this “side gig” a successful company. Shortly after, she felt a need to connect with fans and the sewing community, and did so by hosting themed conferences, filled with sewing, fashion, design and business workshops and fabric shopping. Her goal was to give the tools that others needed to pursue their dream careers in fashion or business.Her tenacity and her own work-life philosophy, led her to be regarded as an influential sewing teacher and garnered her an appearance as a mentor in Lifetime’s “Project Runway: Junior.” Tim Gunn and Mimi G gave the young designers the challenge of creating a five-piece collection inspired by a decade of fashion from the mid-20th century. If that’s not enough, she has worked on campaigns with brands such as Target, Revlon, Google and Living Proof, where she received the opportunity, through Living Proof’s #YourBestHair campaign to interview their Ambassador Jennifer Aniston for her blog. One of her most memorable interviews was with the one and only, Gwen Stefani, for Hallmark Channel, where they discussed all things merry and bright including Gwen’s favorite holiday traditions.She has now become one of the most popular woman in DIY fashion, propelling herself into the ranks of Martha Stewart, Lauren Conrad, and Chrissy Teigen. MimiGStyle.com has blossomed into the world’s leading DIY fashion/sewing online destination, where she models her original designs/patterns ranging from business wear to swimsuits that fit the everyday girl, creates free tutorials of her on trend sew
