Mimi + Me

A Photography Project

Emmanuel  André
We invited a group of powerful women to a photo studio in NYC,
but did not tell them why.

We presented each of them with our entire collection
and let them choose which outfit they wanted to wear for their photoshoot.

We asked them a few fun questions.

If heaven exists, what would you like God to say when you arrive at the gate?

Diandra:  Get in here girl!

How would you like to die?

Marnie:  Happy.

Which talent would you most like to have?

Shruti:  I would love to learn to speak many languages so I could travel anywhere freely, communicate with the local people and really understand culture from their perspective.

How would you like to die?

Liz Friedman:  Oh I know exactly how I would like to die.  Doing laps at the Ritz swimming pool, I couldn’t think of any better way to go.




Which talent would you most like to have?

Bozoma:   I would most like to fly … off of buildings … like a bird … through rainbows and any other meteorological things I could find.


What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Stacey:  Traveling the world and partying with my friends everywhere.





What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Susan:  Actually, I never set out to do this but we manage to find a new field of law, fashion law. And hopefully we've helped the industry a little bit along the way.


 How would you like to die?

Sarah:  I would like to die jumping out of an airplane; falling from the sky.

Which living person do you most admire?

Naja:  My mom is an amazing, amazing singer and she’s just a very, very strong person who’s been through a lot in her life. I travel with her and play music with her every night, I see her on stage; she’s such a powerhouse, such a soulful person. It’s very inspiring to stand next to your mom who’s just so strong.

If heaven exists, what would you like God to say when you arrive at the gate?

Kasia: I would like him to say that I did fucking awesome on this earth!

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

Rhonda:  Awesome! Everything is awesome, even when it’s not. 


 If you were to die and come back as a person or a thing what would it be?

Isolde:  I know it sounds cliché but I will just come back as me! I will do me, but I will just do me a little differently!  I am who I am, take the good and the bad; I don’t want to be anybody else.


 Which talent would you most like to have?

Tosca:  I would love to become an actress or a model.



 What do you consider your greatest achievements?

Tatiana:   I think my greatest achievements are my 3 children. I think it’s almost like a gift from God.
