Mia was studying at Parson's School of Design in New York City in the early 1960s. It was there that she and fellow student Vicky Tiel had the dream of creating a collection of women's clothing. Because Mia had French citizenship through her father, the fledgling designers moved to Paris. They became known for their innovative ready-to-wear Youthquaker line:

The August 21, 1964 Elle magazine featured an article about these popular Paris designers. Although the text was written in French, the photos by Duffy and the designs speak for themselves:
