American designer Michelle Smith began creating timeless silhouettes in 2001. After graduating from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology she interned at Hermès in Paris. While in Paris, Smith continued her studies at the prestigious design school ESMOD while also interning at Louis Vuitton, Torrente and Christian Dior Haute Couture. After three years, Smith returned home to New York and established her own design business, and Milly was born. Milly has developed a cult following, with buyers enamoured by her chic designs and luxurious fabrics.
Pedigreed designer Michelle Smith honed her skills in several storied Parisian fashion houses before moving to New York to launch Milly clothing and accessories. A lover of bright colors, feminine details, and high volume, Smith has built a large, versatile collection that runs the gamut from office-ready pieces to attention-grabbing nighttime separates. Putting a contemporary, cheerful spin on classic silhouettes, Milly has become a staple in the modern woman’s closet, sought out for its statement handbags, sophisticated cocktail dresses, and wide-leg trousers.
