Welcome to the milliemanu website. My name is Camilla, (my family call me Millie) and I am the designer behind this label.
Having trained in textile design, I sold scarves and clothes to well known stores around the world. After nearly twenty years in the fashion business, I took a short break to have my daughter Emmanuelle (Manu) but designing is always in your blood and I just couldn’t resist creating clothes for her as my mother had done for my sisters and I.
Fond childhood memories of learning to sew and the fact that many of the clothes we created are still treasured and worn by our children today, completely inspired this exciting venture. My aim for milliemanu, is to capture the quality, care and quintessential British style from the clothes of my childhood while bringing them up to date for 2016 with a relevant, contemporary twist.
I am really proud that all of the garments in this season’s collection are designed and made here in the UK using only the finest natural fabrics. It also allows us to use the skills of talented craftsman and specialist manufacturers here in the UK, while reducing the environmental footprint of each product. With this in mind, we try to source responsibly and are working hard towards ensuring all of the materials we use are produced, fairly, ethically, sustainably and close to home so they positively benefit local economies as well as the environment.
