There are those of us who grew up being in love with the world of fashion. This is the case for 26-year-old Suliann Pinnock.
With an unpredictable sense of style, she can be caught sporting anything from retrofits to a chic modern look paired with minimal make-up, statement outerwear and shoes. Her life’s path didn’t start out being entirely based in the fashion industry, it took off with her being a flight attendant; travelling the world and being exposed to different cultures and, in turn, different aspects of fashion.
After a few years, the fitness enthusiast was granted the opportunity to attend one of the best fashion schools in the world, The Fashion Institute of Technology.
“I had a smooth transition into studying fashion because it felt like I was where I belonged. It was extremely rewarding for a number of reasons, but to say I did what I wanted to do is something priceless,” she recounted.
Now with a degree in fashion business management, she applies this knowledge to her online boutique business, Shopmimc.
“I started the business after graduating because I didn’t want to work for anyone but myself,” she said.
She hopes that through her dedication to her business, she can inspire others to follow their dreams and, being the bearer of a philanthropic heart, she has every intention of increasing her company’s profit in order to facilitate giving back.
