A head start in the fashion industry
Born a Connecticut gal but lived in between Connecticut and New Jersey all her life, Michelle Smith knew she was destined to be a designer. After graduating from FIT, a fashion college in New York City, Smith landed an internship job at Hermes, in Paris, and was the first American employee that was sent to work there. Michelle was ecstatic and after her three months stint at Hermes, she fell in love with Paris so much that she applied to Esmod, an elite fashion school, and another internship job, this time at Louis Vuitton. Talk about a whirlwind romance with fashion!
Smith admitted that her working stint for designer Helen Wang had given her inspiration to launch her own line of clothing. It was at that time that specific orders were coming in and she was looking for her own voice and was confident enough to launch her own line. Her love, as well as her background in leather goods, inspired her to create a line of handbags too. More than a decade after debuting her first collection, MILLY will be launching four stand - alone boutiques in the Middle East and Tokyo, as well as two boutiques in Madison Avenue and East Hampton, New York City in 2015.
