Migmar Tsering's parents escaped from Tibet on foot in
1959 and Migmar was born in 1976 in a Tibetan refugee
settlement. In 1986 he was given a scholarship for the
Pestalozzi International Village where he was educated
with children from Zambia, Nepal, Thailand, India and the West Bank.
Migmar then studied at the London College of Fashion and
worked with Katharine Hamnett before starting the 'Free Tibet' label
which sold world-wide with Joe Komodo. Migmar's raises
awareness about the Chinese Occupation of Tibet and raises money for
Tibet through the fashion industry. He has also climbed
mountains for Tibet and helped build schools in Tibet.
In October 2002 he opened 'Tibet Dreams' - his own shop
at 50A Earlham Street in London's Covent Garden. Clothes
are all made of natural fabrics such as wool and hemp. The
Label 'Tibet Dreams' is designed by Migmar and 10% of the
profit will be put into the 'Tibet Dreams Fund' which will
support a diverse range of Tibetan projects.
The shop will also stock Buddhist statues, jewellery,
music, videos, books, and be a centre of information about
Buddhist and Tibetan events nationally.
