Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.

Hi  craftsmanship many times was born out of scarcity. The same is true for Carmen Fiol's designs, who fought a long and stubborn fight for her right to pursue a career in fashion. It is said that in over 70 years of creating, not once has she made the same design twice. Monika Knutsson discovered Fiol’s designs on her first visit to Cuba in 2017, shortly after the designer’s death. She returned this spring, becoming acquainted with Fiol’s ingenious dressmaking techniques, artfully combining her ethereal geometric and floral-motif laces with pintucks. The lace, says Knutsson, “was used less as embellishment and more to give the garment structure, flow and air.” Join us this Sunday when we celebrate Carmen Fiol, the end of a beautiful summer, the vibrancy of Cuban culture and Monika Knutsson's talent to transform lace into timeless jewelry creations. Los Ciegos del Barrio will be performing and we will have Cuban sips and snacks.

Savage x Fenty:
Yaf Sparkle Body chains make history

It is one of the most talked about fashion shows ever, and I am beyond grateful to see Yaf Sparkle being a part of it! Rihanna's lingerie line closed out Fashion week in its first ever NYFW appearance with a fully choreographed performance featuring lesser-known models, as well as famous faces like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, Duckie Thot, and Slick Woods. The show was about inclusivity, models came in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities; they had different hair colors, skin colors, body markings, curves and commanded the room with their own unique swagger - visibly pregnant women being one of the main focal points! The casting was a reminder that fashion is for all, but it was also a true celebration of womanhood and its magnificent ability to carry life. It is hard not to compare this event to the Victoria's Secret show, which was left looking outdated after Rihanna's latest outing at Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York. In my perception the atmosphere in the room was very special probably because of this liberation, as no restrictions applied when NYFW'18 closed its curtain. We all are beautiful!

Broome Street gets even yummier!

The name Zabar looms over the New York food world, cornering the market on food markets, bakeries and wine shops. Eighty years and three generations of Zabars later, Zabar’s is still a family business. Now Oliver Zabar, the son of patriarch Eli, is spreading his own wings. Oliver is on track to open Devon by the end of the month, adding a casual restaurant and cocktail bar, with an adjacent retail bakery that will supply the restaurant with breads and pastries to Broome Streets' finest. Devon will offer what Mr. Zabar calls “elevated American bar food” with a French influence. We couldn't be more excited as it is literally across the street from Yaf Sparkle, so I'm sure you will see our favorite bites in our Instagram stories now and then ;)
