The MiA Project Opens Their First Store in Los Angeles


How do you foster the Made in America conversation in a tangible way? The answer for the MiA Project, a retailer that highlights U.S. designers and manufactures was a brick-and-mortar store. Their new space in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles features both emerging designers and heritage brands in fashion, lifestyle and home categories. Think high quality, cool and authentic wrapped into one. Founded my Micha Thomas, a brand strategist in the lifestyle and music space has plans to open several destinations across the country to compliment their e-commerce store and storytelling initiatives. The company also offers a wide variety of creative services.

The store will have an experiential element and not only foster the local community but highlight brands that are outside of the LA footprint with trunk shows and art exhibitions including Minnesota’s Hackwith Design House featuring exclusive apparel pieces for the store along with an appearance by New York’s philanthropic jewelry house Joan Hornig, and an art show with Joshua Tree-based artist, stylist and costume designer Kime Buzzelli.

Other labels housed in the shop are: New York’s Spokewoven, Marble & Milkweed, Stephane Hubert and Shabd; LA-based The Squad, Shiva Rose, Hedgehouse and Gabriela Artigas and lines from across the country such as Manready Mercantile, Imogene + Willie, Shwood and more.
