Meet a Scientologist Steps Out in Style With Chie Mihara

Press Release – updated: Jan 9, 2020 11:06 PST

LOS ANGELES, January 9, 2020 ( – Scientology Network’s MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST, the weekly series spotlighting the everyday lives of Scientologists from around the world and all walks of life, announces an episode featuring renowned women’s shoe designer Chie Mihara.
MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Chie Mihara built her popular global shoe brand with a simple philosophy—take the seriousness out of fashion. Drawing on her multicultural background and multidisciplined arts education, her shoe designs are fresh, funky and feminine—and sold in leading high-end boutiques and luxury department stores around the world.
Born and raised in Brazil to Japanese parents, Chie Mihara traces her interest in art back to childhood and the character sketches she did, inspired by Japanese manga magazines her father brought home to her. As a teen, her focus shifted to fashion, coinciding with a wave of Japanese designers, such as Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake, making an impact on the world fashion scene. At her father’s insistence, Chie moved to Japan to study fashion, later getting her first job with well-known designer Junko Koshino. Wanting to broaden her artistic development, Chie moved to New York, where she studied fashion and sculpture. Combining the two disciplines, she started designing women’s shoes with prestigious shoe designers in the U.S. and France. Always believing she had a personal story to tell as an artist, she eventually struck out on her own, moving to the land known for producing some of the highest quality shoes in the world—Spain. There, she fashioned high-quality shoes with a fun, funky and fresh aesthetic and grew her company into one of the world’s most recognized brands in women’s footwear.
