Bejeweled Masks

Ghanaian born and Southern California raised, Mimi Plange began her eponymous luxury wear label,  Mimi  Plange, formally known as " Boudoir d'Huitres " in 2007 with a desire to create American Sportswear inspired by Victorian and African historical fashion.

For her stone and Swarovski crystal-encrusted masks, Plange was inspired by African tribal scarifications, elements often used in her work. She loved the idea of costume adornments that are a little less permanent, and wanted to add a modern crystallized twist whether they were functional or not. These exquisite masks are handmade and can be worn for the night with a simple outfit, or hung as art on the wall.
