I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and importers. I remembered learning how to do inventory and marketing at a very early age when my mom built Mikka’s Closet which has became famous in the 90’s in different shops like Robinson’s, Shoppesville etc. I recall seeing cousin and fellow blogger Danika Rio who now manages Nava which was built during the same time too.
Formerly, my mom sold custom-made bags, shoes and apparel. Ever since, she has been very fascinated with style and fashion (thus my kaartehan). She named the shop using my sister’s Nickname, and produced campaigns featuring celebrities like Ara Mina etc. But today’s retail landscape is very different and competitive and I wanted to help her revive her business with strong online pull. Rebranded also her logo, which the great Vince Canlapan did.
And we did! I invited her to co-sell her items in my bazaar spaces and ever since I have been seeing lots of fuchsia pink “Mikka” paper bags in those events, showing how in demand her items were. She sells stylish apparel (see the lace collection we’ve photographed in Boracay) and mostly, customized bags and shoes. Below are samples of what we’ve been selling and there will be more the next year through my shop, and our other different bazaars.
