You've Never Seen Mimi Elashiry Like This Before
Mimi Elashiry is a social media star, designer and all round cool-girl — we all know that. But what you may not know is that she's a dancer. Like, a really good one. The Byron Bay babe with over 800k Instagram followers studied ballet from the age of six, as well as jazz, tap and contemporary (just to name a few). The 19-year-old is a jack of all trades when it comes to creativity, so when we heard that high-street favourite Sportsgirl tapped her to front their 2016 denim campaign — which required more than just static poses — we weren't surprised.
Mimi choreographed and performed a dance routine around the streets of Melbourne as the crux of a short film for the Aussie brand. Not only does this campaign mark Mimi's triumphant return to dance, but it makes the idea of leaving behind our Summer dresses for denim a seriously exciting prospect.
To celebrate the release of Mimi's collaboration with Sportsgirl, we spent the day on set to watch her in action, and also steal 10 minutes to chat everything from her dance career to her ever-evolving style. Read on to see what she had to say, then watch the epic short film!
