Milena Silvano’s career began in Milan and London while training under major fashion labels such as Romeo Gigli and Jessica Ogden. The designer quickly found herself disillusioned with the busy, urban lifestyle, removing herself to East Sussex to live a more holistic life in the English countryside. Along with this move came an organic transformation in her designs. She started growing and foraging her own dyes, reclaiming dead stock sheepskins, and even mocking up each design with her hands in order to use a more instinctive approach to creating. Her work is now at the forefront of eco-feminist designs, combining ethical sourcing with androgynous design and inciting appreciation for the longevity of well-crafted pieces.
