Mikiye's Profile

About

I guess I can say I'm lucky since it seems all the women in my family have been very creative. My Great Grandmother was very much into craft making and as long as I can remember my Grandmother was making something. When I was young I spent most of my spare time drawing and painting!

I have always loved flowers. I have memories of helping my Grandmother in her garden. She grew beautiful Roses. When I moved to San Francisco I worked across the street from a fresh flower stand. I always visited that florist to wear flowers in my hair. I quickly became known as "the flower girl."

I have always loved flowers. I have memories of helping my Grandmother in her garden. She grew beautiful Roses. When I moved to San Francisco I worked across the street from a fresh flower stand. I always visited that florist to wear flowers in my hair. I quickly became known as "the flower girl." When I moved back to Southern California I didn't have access to fresh flowers so I began to make my own floral accessories in early 2000. Before I knew it, I had people stopping me on the street and asking me at work where I got the beautiful flowers I was wearing in my hair. After making a few for friends and clients I began to realize people wanted my accessories. In no time I was "the flower girl" again. I was written up in W Magazine and featured in magazines like Essence, Teen People and Shape. My accessories also made appearances on the popular television shows: The O.C. and The Simple Life. Some of my celebrity clients include Rock Star Kimberly Cole, Kelly Osbourne, Paris Hilton, Lacey Chabert and Shaun Robinson to name a few.

Developing Mikiye Creations was the next step in my creative adventure. I take great pride in making very high quality accessories. I use silk flowers, Organza, Silk Dupioni, Taffeta, Satin, Silk Chiffon, Swarovski crystal, Freshwater Pearls, feathers, semi precious stones and metals. I am self taught so I am always learning and developing my skills as a designer. I personally make everything in my store.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read a little about me.
