Milly is the name given to the "Milly by Michelle Smith" designer clothing collection of dresses, cardigans, coats, skirts and jackets created by the company's founder, Michelle Smith.
Michelle Smith spent a lifetime loving fashion, and in 2001 she created the Milly brand, which is celebrated for its use of prints and colours, fabrics chosen and the all important attention to detail.
From an early age, Michelle was interested in fashion and she won a scholarship to an art school to study fashion illustration. She later studied at the New York Fashion Institute of Technology. She spent time working at Hermès in Manhattan, and later was granted a period of training at the Hermès Paris headquarters. During this time, Michelle studied and the Parisian design school ESMOD and also trained at the fashion houses of Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Torrente.
After three years in Paris, Michelle returned home to New York and founded Milly.
The Milly brand now has a devoted army of loyal celebrity fans including Pixie Lott (pictured left), Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow and Thandie Newton.
There are two really great online shops that stock items from the Milly Clothing range, and both, although UK based, offer worldwide delivery.
Both stores also accept all major credit cards.
