What is the collection inspiration?

Every Milla Nova collection is inspired by a historical period or location with a bride in mind who wants to tell her own story but also that of the place surrounding her. Past collections have been inspired by Havana (Cuba), Sintra (Portugal), and Italy and Italian architecture.

How did the brand get its start?

Milla Nova was founded in 2002. Over the past 15 years, our company has grown from a small studio into a global name in wedding dresses.  The Milla Nova brand gained attention after showing at Bridal Fashion Week in Barcelona, Essen, Germany, and London. We found that international buyers were delighted by (our) small brand designing wedding gowns that were high quality and on-trend but didn’t have a sky-high price point.

Is there a Milla Nova muse?

We do not have one specific Muse, per se. Every time we shoot the wedding gowns, our models become the face of our collection. These women constantly inspire us and in effect become our muses.  Every collection shoot I find that it’s not the dress that will make the bride beautiful, but is actually the bride that makes the dress beautiful.

Favorite part of the design process?

I like to show the beauty of women through the gown style and enjoy creating various silhouette designs or moods that our bride can find herself in.  I create a character through each dress, so am in constant communication with Emilia to ensure we are on the same page and that I am always designing into the spirit of each bride who wears a Milla Nova wedding dress.
