Research into The House of Mirelle is headed up by Carrie Henderson.
The House of Mirelle is being rebuilt using a combination of research, interviews and Oral History, that means hearing people’s stories told in their own words.
The House of Mirelle was open for 40 years. You may have been one of the people who worked, shopped or visited there.
Carrie is telling your story to the world and the good news is you can get involved…
To date over 60 hours of interviews have been collected from many different people who have stories to tell.
The historic archive is growing too. Photographs, clippings, fashion show programmes, letters and invitations are being added to the physical and virtual archive.
A collection of clothing is growing and growing and it tells the story too. We’re always interested to hear about new items or Mirelle clothing you own.
Rebuilding Mirelle is creating a permanent legacy from a fascinating and important period of Hull’s history.
With it the Mirelle community is filled with colleagues, customers, family members and friends who have reconnected through this research.
If you have any memories of Mirelle and would like to add them to the archive contact her by email: email@example.com or fill out the contact form here.
We’re looking forward to meeting you!
