What better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th than by supporting the Canadian fashion industry?
As Team Milli travels the world to bring you the most interesting, fashion forward and quality designs, quite often we don’t have to travel far as some of the most fabulous pieces are right at our doorstep.
We celebrate and applaud these Canadian designers and are proud to include them in our curated collections.
