When a young girl is gifted with a family imparts a solid foundation filled with models of powerful women that came before her, only the best springs forth, blossoms and is brazen. This woman comes into her own, and in-turn, perpetuates this goodness and lays the groundwork for other girls. Mimie Laurant is one such woman.
In this episode, Mimie shares the impetus that led her to create Discover Brazen.
Mimie Laurant, Founder and CEO of Discover Brazen
A Third Culture Kid (TCK) that is originally from Louisiana but spent her childhood in Benin, eSwatini, and The Netherlands from fifth grade through high school graduation.
Constantly being labeled as an “other” for being a woman, black, and American is what planted the seeds at a young age for what is now Discover Brazen.
Discover Brazen is an apparel brand grounded in the black feminist viewpoint. Our mission is the impact the world one person at a time, empowering them to be bold, determined, passionate, visionary, and fearless. Quarterly we release a limited edition collection that highlights and honors the contributions and legacies of black women.
Our current collection, The Trailblazer Collection, honors the legacies of Marsha P. Johnson, Shirley Chisholm, Judith Jamison, Madam CJ Walker, and Harriet Tubman. Our next collection, Discover Brazen x #aneducationmatters, debuts in mid-February 2019. With Discover Brazen, Mimie seeks not only to provide people with wonderfully designed goods, but also to educate them about the amazing legacy and history fo Black women in America – a place where we were never meant to thrive.
