Owner, Mi Moda
Q: How many years have you been in business in Santa Ana?
A: I have had my business in Downtown Santa Ana since 1979.
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in Jalisco, Mexico.
Q: What inspired you to open your business?
A: I decided to come to the U.S. in 1970, alone, with little money, but committed to seeking a better life. I landed a job working in fashion in Los Angeles and began selling clothing to my friends from my car. In 1979, I moved to Downtown Santa Ana and instantly fell in love with the area. I just knew I had to open my brick-and-mortar business on Fourth Street.
Q: What is unique about your business?
A: I specialize in men’s clothing, Italian suits, ties, and shirts.
Q: What recommendation do you have for visitors?
A: I invite them to come and have fun downtown and look at our city's beautiful murals because the murals tell us different stories.
