Milly by Michelle Smith Fall 2010 video

No, listening to loud music for all these years did not take a toll on your hearing. At least not enough to make you completely deft. This video has unfortunately no sound due to copyright. But who cares about the tunes? We care about the threads.
Michelle Smith's last collection at Bryant Park, R.I.P ... Enjoy!
Love,
Kelie XO

DESIGNER WATCH: Michelle Smith

Milly by Michelle Smith is synonymous with luxury, youth, and ultimately great style. Michelle Smith creates timeless pieces that are feminine, flirty, and downright sassy for her ever-expanding clientele. Milly is an iconic brand known for exquisite colors and prints, luxurious fabrics, and a great attention-to-detail.

After winning an art scholarship to study fashion illustration, she followed her dreams, moved to New York City and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology. During her time there she worked as a sales associate for European luxury brand, Hermes. Upon graduation from FIT, she wrote to the President of Hermes requesting an internship at their Paris headquarters. Her request was granted, making Michelle Smith the first American Hermes employee sent to work in Paris by this legendary fashion house.

While in Paris she amassed some serious internships at design houses such as Christian Dior Haute Couture and Louis Vuitton, all while enrolled at the prestigious design school, ESMOD.

After three years of paying her dues, she returned to New York and launched her label. The collection is sold at the finest specialty and department stores worldwide, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harrods, and Takashimaya.

In Spring 2011, Milly by Michelle Smith will mark its 10th anniversary with several exciting new endeavors; the opening of Milly's flagship boutique on Madison Avenue, the debut of its handbag and fashion jewelry collections, and "Milly Minis", clothing for young Milly aspirants aged 2-7.
