On paper, Sami Miró is the ultimate Millennial—one that seems to fulfill nearly every generalization: She worked in marketing, then moved to L.A., realized her creative energy was being stifled, and left a comfy, corporate track to pursue a life in fashion. But, as is the case with most people, there’s far more to Miró than her résumé, Instagram, and highly publicized relationship with Zac Efron suggest.
With a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in global entrepreneurship, as well as a knowledge of vintage clothing that could rival Iris Apfel’s, the 28-year-old is working to create her own brand, Sami Miró Vintage, and a reconstructed, modern vintage clothing line. “I want to show people how vintage can be incorporated into their everyday lives without it being some crazy, insane, costume-y vintage piece,” she says. Oh, and she has a few video series in the works.
