Cammy Miller

Founder + Designer – Show Me Your Mumu   |  Venice Beach, California

Cammy Miller grew up in Atlanta and New Orleans and around her mom’s popular clothing boutiques.

Post graduation, the friends relocated to New York City and immersed themselves in the fashion industry. They had a shared epiphany during a weekend trip to Miami in 2009, where they kept improvising lightweight, fun, throw-on garments that could be versatile, yet still figure-flattering. Thus was the birth of Show Me Your Mumu that today is a wildly popular brand that’sembraced coast to coast and by celebs such as Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson and Beyoncé.
