When it comes to sustainable fashion, bohemian dresses or minimalist styles often come to mind. However, more people are now becoming aware of fast fashion’s impact, leading to a growing demand for ethical options that will cater to a wider audience.
Enter Mikumo Apparel, a slow fashion label by Asian-American illustrator, Tina (also known as Bon). Drawing inspiration from Korean and Japanese fashion styles, as well as hints of the dark/light academia aesthetics, she aims to introduce a unique approach to sustainable style. Find out more about her and the beautiful launch collection below!
Who is Tina?
With a background in oil painting, and a job in nonprofit management, Tina is a freelance illustrator in her spare time. In March 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, she started her first instagram account, @bonbon_illustrator, as an attempt to reclaim her creativity and make art for herself again, rather than for others. Since then, ‘Bonbon’ has amassed a significant social media following of 28.1k and counting.
