Miquita Oliver is both a familiar face and a mystery: her presence in many teenage years almost like an acquaintance to some, a friend to others - as a woman she is a figure whose rock’n’rolla aura lends herself perfectly to the Preen Line ethos.
We get between the sheets with one of the coolest women in London, whose life has been a rollercoaster yet always laden with culture, art and music. Key for Miquita, and essential for the Preen Line woman.
Preen Line embraces the arts, culture and music in an effortlessly modern and dedicated manner: how have these influences shaped you?
I truly believe I am who I am, because of the culture I was surrounded by as a child. The music, the dancing , the clothes .... the moves my family members have made in culture over the years, continue to inspire my daily life.
