Choosing artisan means supporting a form of economic development that has deep meaning, one that originates from and is rooted in the uniqueness of people and place.

We feel honoured to work with brands that are committed to sustainable and ethical practices, and whose products are handmade and carry a real identity. Latin American designers don’t simply want to sell, they aspire to have a lasting and positive impact on their communities

Mi Jong Lee

Mi Jong Lee is a women’s ready-to-wear brand with a focus on unique fabrications, artisanal finishes and exceptional quality. The collection is designed under the creative direction of the brand’s namesake, Korean-American designer Mi Jong Lee.

Mi Jong Lee is heavily inspired by the world of fine arts.  Her collections reflect a refined understanding of color and are comprised of staple pieces that carry forward throughout seasons. Each collection features tailored separates that are juxtaposed by feminine silhouettes. Strong ethics and sustainability standards are at the heart of the brand, and supporting and preserving local production is paramount to its DNA.

Each Mi Jong Lee piece is patterned, cut, sewn and finished in the heart of New York City's garment district, in the same atelier Mi Long Lee opened over thirty years ago. A single artisan creates each piece from start to finish, which is rare in today’s world of fast fashion.  This process ensures the utmost attention to quality and gives each artisan a sense of pride, responsibility and ownership of each piece. 

Mi Jong Lee is a member of “Made in New York.” The brand was certified by the New York City Economic Development Corporation in 2016 for its commitment to local production.
