" Enough of senseless, destructive clothing. I want you to wear a story and I want you to be the storyteller. Some stories will be painful, some will be healing. But the point is to spark a conversation that will lead to a more conscious mind " .
MILELE ATELIER collections exemplify bold simplicity with a classic feminine edge. Designer Erika Hicks converts classic silhouettes into wardrobe essentials that are both modern and personal. Hicks’s eye for immaculate detail, use of lavish, modernized fabrics and precise tailoring has made MILELE ATELIER magnetic.
Convinced from a very early age that fashion design was her calling, Erika earned a degree in Fashion Design at Wayne State University. She later followed her passion to New York City and was granted an internship with Michael Kors, later landing a career with AnnInc.
