milia m was born and brought up in Beirut but chose Paris to study fashion design. After having worked as lingerie designer, she returned to Beirut to set up her own studio where she launched her first collection in 1999. Since then, milia m has been producing two collections a year and sells all over the world.
Balanced between sobriety and joy, milia’s collections perfectly encapsulate the designer’s spirit. Her clothing is exuberant, romantic and modern, with just a hint of Middle Eastern mystery. Softly feminine, milia m’s designs are essays in subtle seduction.*
