Take me to Albania…
Mirjeta is proudly an exclusive Australian independent swim label. Located on sunny Fraser Coast: in the town of Hervey Bay, Queensland.
We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians; The Butchulla People of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
Mirjeta is pronounced MIR - JET - A. The word Mirjeta comes from the Albanian Language. Translated Mirjeta means in English ' GOOD LIFE'. The name Mirjeta was selected to represent my Swim Label as a connection to my family + culture. Albanian summers are alluring, and it's the new destination for European summer adventures.
My name is Belinda and I am the founder and designer of Mirjeta Collective. Mirjeta is my life, in swimwear. Pre- Mirjeta, I was studying a double degree in Law/Psych while working full time as a Kindergarten Teacher. Deferring from my passion in Law/Psych was daunting, but I wanted to pursue Mirjeta with all my heart. Monday- Friday, you'll find me inspiring young minds and every other moment, I am busy with all things Mirjeta. I have put my heart and soul into creating an exclusive swim label. When I'm not doing all things Mirjeta, you will find me at the Beach.
Mirjeta was created in 2018, from a long line of LOVE for Swimwear. From magazines, models, design and fashion trends. To my enormous swim collections, purchased from all around the world. I have always been captivated by quality swimwear. My first design was created in 2008, for my attendance at Rehab Pool Party in Las Vegas (Youtube this place: It's amazing!)
Mirjeta was insipred to become an Australian swim label, that was completely Minimalistic. Mirjeta ranges are limited in the release Collections, No Restocks EVER! I have no desire for Mirjeta to become a 'Fast Fashion' label.
I have so many exciting things coming for Mirjeta. The first release of Mirjeta Men's Swim coming soon and the next Jipsē (Gypsy) swim release. I am working on new designs for 2021. If you'd like to keep updated, sign up to receive alerts.
Thank you for supporting Mirjeta and I hope you Llve the good life in Mirjeta.
