Passion & Purpose lead me here..
Here's a little bit about how the SS journey began.
The relationship with Art, Fashion and Crafts began at a young age for Mira Patel. Her Influencers to pursue a career in Fashion have been non other than her family of very and many creative talents! A more formal journey into the industry began in 1999 after she graduated from a reputed Fashion Institute. It has been a road well travelled full of peaks and valleys....her passion for this industry only kept growing!
SourcingStories Ltd, was founded purely out of a personal call to do better from experiences Mira gathered over 20 years of being in the Fashion Industry. She has worked in various roles and countries, which helped her built a strong foundation in the areas of Product Development, Sourcing & Manufacturing, driving her to want to focus more on conscious and sustainable way of doing business. Working with the luxury, designer and high street fashion sector gave her an in - depth knowledge in fields of Design, Brand Ideation, Sales and Marketing. Working with International markets instilled and taught her to embrace various cultures, forging close Friendships, Collaborations and long lasting Business Partnerships. This she says led her into founding a company built on pillars of Transparency, Reliability, Accountability and Trust.
Entrepreneurial at heart, along side her full time job Mira also ventured into co - founding an ethical fashion and luxury candle brand. In 2018 she decided it was time to step away from the 9 to 5 to continue what she loves full time; Embarking on a new journey to build a business with a Purpose to Drive Positive Change - the only constant which enables us to collectively evolve towards a more Sustainable Way of Life!
