Erika Hicks founded milele atelier in 2014 With the initial design intent to simply create beautiful emotional hand-crafted clothing, Erika soon came to terms with the deep disparity of the afrikan diaspora. “Changing the trajectory of the Brand has been a deep soul searching journey.”
" 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 "
Creative Director, Erika Hicks
Our deep seeded mission is to provide our clients with emotional clothes that tell the story of culture and humanity.
The Brand is committed to restoring the historical consciousness of brown people in celebrating our heritage with a revival of afrikan adornment.
Inciting dialogue on both social and cultural scales facing the afrikan diaspora, milele atelier aims to foster the evolution of afrikan culture.
It’s our work to educate the youth about the truths and great legacy of the brown culture.
Milele Atelier is a creative historical reference point of modern afrikan adornments.We welcome you on this journey to connect with your ancestral heritage.
