Mimi Hocke was born in Hamburg, a City in the North of Germany where she was brought up in the world of fashion photography and advertising, her mother being a model and her father an art director in an advertising agency, she wanted to be an illustrator. In the late 70s she grew up with well-known painters of the figurative and contemporary art movement in West Germany. Being inspired by the arts, music and fashion of that dynamic time and its subculture, she moved to London in the late 80s where she studied at Epsom School of Art & Design fashion illustration and photography and graduated with a Higher National Diploma in fashion illustration and promotion. During that time she had work experience at british Vogue and I-D Magazine which made her decide to become a stylist.
Having returned to Germany in 1994, Mimi was stagiaire at Marie-Claire and then fashion assistant at german Vogue. Very soon she was working as a full time fashion editor for several years and then went freelance, moving to Paris in 2020 where she now is based as a freelanced fashion editor and stylist. Mimi gained experience in the fashion industry, working with international well known photographers and high class magazines, such as Vogue, Harper‘s Bazaar, Elle and L‘Officiel as well as working for big advertising campaigns and commercials.
