Millie is a textile designer based in London. After graduating from Central St Martins, she has worked within the textiles industry both in Italy and in London. Working for an Italian mill she was designing hand drawn prints for wallpapers and wall coverings alongside designing for woven fabrics. Since then she has worked in London for a heritage woven textiles company and is now a freelance designer as well as running her own business 'Studio Mito'.
Millie’s work takes a biomimetic approach, taking inspiration from nature to explore and often replicate its principles through design. Her approach is process led, looking at the inner workings of the natural world to create bold patterns, 3D textures and elegant structures. She aims to continue developing her practice to explore the intersection between science and design and how we can integrate the beauty and complexity of nature into fabrics and products.
