At the same time she studied and worked in the evenings at a jewelry house Schiaparelli and Arnold Scaasi (“Jewelry by Scassi”).In addition, Mimi worked and collaborated with such Haute Couture houses as Robert DeMario (1959) and “Brania” (the 60’s), marked jewelry decorations “Brania / Mimi di N”.And after going a long way in honing her talent in the best fashion houses, having accumulated vast experience, in 1960, Madame Mimi di Niscemi opened her own company in New York. Meanwhile, her jewellery pieces have different markings. In particular, “Mimi Di N”, “Mimi DiN”, “Mimi Di N Design”, and “Mimi DiN Design”. However, the first years, her jewelry pieces were without the labeling the year of manufacture.Big fame enjoyed her large symmetrical buckles Mimi Di N for the belt with animalistic plot. Founded in 1960 and up to 1995 Mimi Di Niscemi company produced also belt buckles.
