Even as a child, Nicole Komitov never wore clothes from mass production. Her nanny was a trained tailor and taught Nicole that it takes nothing but high quality fabrics, an idea and craftsmanship to create the clothes you have always dreamed of. That’s exactly what Nicole is doing with her label Milk. Even though nobody ever taught her how to tailor professionally, she learned the skills by herself and won the MINI Design Award.
Her work shows a “highly intellectual approach, but it’s still very effortless to wear”, as the jury’s fashion expert Melanie Gleinser (Accessories director DIVA) noted. You can wear it as well with sneakers as with high heels – as Nicole, always being dressed in her own clothes, proves. And even though you can tell a milk-dress by its look, Nicole dislikes branding: “Fashion should be independent of its branding”, she says. “I design clothes for women who don’t care about branding. They care about clothes which reflects their personality.”
