Meet the Team
Jigme Love, Founder
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.
Her Style: classic and feminine.
Courtney Watkins, Partner
From her earliest memories of playing dress-up in her mother’s closet, Courtney has always loved fashion and putting together outfits in creative ways. This love of fashion inspired her to obtain a degree in Merchandise Marketing at FIDM in Los Angeles. She has worked as a celebrity stylist, a trend forecaster, and a Director of Sales and Marketing for a women’s clothing line. As a Partner at Mine & Yours, Courtney gets to combine her love of fashion, business, and putting together great outfits on a daily basis.
Her Style: edgy with a girly twist.
