Mia Mai was launched in 2007 by Ami Lowman. Graduating from the University of Portsmouth with a first in Fashion and Textiles Enterprise, Ami left university with an ambition to start her own company having entered and won the 2006 Enterprise Challenge which awards funding and support for new businesses.

Based on the south-coast of the Uk, in the coastal town of Southsea, Mia Mai is a creative business offering something special and unique.

Evolving over the years Mia Mai follows Ami’s interests and passions. Currently focussing on leading creative workshops and developing her lingerie designs with an ambition to launch into the bridal sector in the next 5 years, Ami also continues her illustration work taking on bespoke commissions with ideas for a second exhibition in the future.

Ami has an active social media presence and you can find her here:
