A consummate girly-girl, Jigme is almost always wearing a dress. When she was 8 years old, her friends staged an intervention to suggest she try wearing jeans. She burst into tears, and promptly found new friends. Today, the dress thing still holds true – although now with a more grown-up twist. After completing her MBA in Europe and returning to Vancouver following years living abroad in Paris, Monaco, and Los Angeles, Jigme wanted to create something special for her hometown. Mine & Yours is inspired by Jigme’s love of the curated boutiques of France and the cool, laid-back, buy-sell-trade stores of Los Angeles.
