It has been a very hectic and emotional July flying over to Hong Kong for my Dad's funeral (sadly we have lost him to cancer at 70 years old after a year's battle, I do believe he is at a better place and I miss him everyday.) then straight back to a full on summer holiday entertaining my 2 lovely boys.

We had a fantastic time with our family in Abersoch, North Wales, it is like our second home that we absolutely adore. The weather has been kind to us in this part of the country, we went boating, digging holes on the beach, paddling in the sea, mackerel fishing, seals and giant jellyfish watching and I have even swam in the sea without a wet suit a few times. It seems just a little easier looking after my 2 toddlers (now 5 and 3 years old) this summer, I can definitely see the light in the tunnel. It was wonderful to see them making new friends on the beach confidently, enjoying paddling without their eczema hurting their legs and my older boy has been kayaking on his own with me on the paddle board alongside and my little one just loved all the beach activities especially ice-cream and fell asleep as soon as we were on the boat, must be the sea air and rocking motions. 

Now we are back at work and I am very excited to release and share with you all my new Mimi & Thomas cashmere designs for the new season.

It is always a thrilling journey to get inspired, draft my designs, sampling with my lovely family-run supplier in Nepal who’s done me proud and did an amazing job again to bring my designs to life, delivery is here and we had a photo shoot with my gorgeous yummy mummy friend Josie on that HOTTEST evening in July with bi-fold doors and windows open, fan is on, blotting paper ready. What a trooper!

This A/W 2019 season, I’m rolling out our signature accent borders cashmere wraps and new mini-me wraps for the little ones. Working with a family-run mill near Kathmandu for 5 years, we've created our finest cashmere. Using the longest fibres for beautiful softness and warmth. Each of our pure cashmere wrap is a timeless seasonal accessory that will add colours, style to your everyday outfit. 

  • Free UK and worldwide delivery
  • Monogram service available
  • Made in 100% finest cashmere in Nepal

I hope you enjoy wearing our cashmere. If you have any questions or feedback, please do not hesitate to drop me a line or contact us on social media.
