USA – Humanity is facing trying times. Leadership in every nation is busy strategizing a safe way out of the Coronavirus outbreak. However, many ethnic minorities in the USA are still facing racial indiscrimination. Acts like these cannot help in any way. Thanks to Milli Vibes that it has taken swords in both the hands and has proactively taken a stand to console the minorities and offer them solutions to keep themselves protected from Covid-19.
Designer Mimi Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant with Korean and Chinese Lineage was shopping at Walmart when a customer told her she shouldn’t be allowed in the store because she’s “Chinese and a walking virus”.
Mimi was completely taken aback by this incident and was forced to reflect on her life choices. She had been previously disguising her identity by wearing glasses and hats so that she would not have to listen to any racial slurs, however, this time she decided to love herself and her community. This conviction gave birth to a customized Cloth mask “Walking Virus”.
The designer has also launched a range of Fashion Masks on her website Milli Vibes. The web store is dealing in Men and Women’s clothing for a long time now and has grown to win trust from a lot of its customers. The launch of the “Walking Virus” is a sign that there are strong and uplifting people in the society who can empathize with their fellow human beings and help them solve any problems they may face.
Mimi Nguyen is a talented designer and a wonderful person. When faced with adversity she did not shy away from but took her time to retaliate back in the best possible way and served her community. In her words: “At the time of the incident at Walmart, I was instantly appalled and distraught and begin crying. I wanted to leave the store but couldn’t because I needed to get things for my daughter’s schoolwork and home due to California shut down. After leaving the store I felt defeated. Later on, that week I wanted to reclaim my power and not be ashamed of my ethnicity and that’s where the “Walking Virus” mask came to life.”
Her clientele loved the idea and the quality of the mask as most of her stock was sold out within a matter of days. If you are looking to add charm to your quarantine days by looking beautiful and staying safe at the same time than Milli Vibes is the place you need.
Mimi loves to keep her clients excited. On the 15th of every month she organizes a Free Mask Frenzy on her website where she gives away 100s of masks to her customers for free.
