Elena is a technical designer born and raised in Romania until she immigrated to the U.S. with her parents in 2002. Working as an auditor and accountant in corporate America for over a decade she developed a high sense of structure in her daily habits. But creativity was missing....mid-accounting career she became more interested in the technical side of fashion by creating amateur projects. In 2016 she pursued this newfound passion and continued her studies at Fashion Institute of Technology, New York.
While enrolled in Technical Design program she crafted a plan to create a portfolio of products with the ideal mix of practical fashion. Elena seeks out the gaps to improve and create products that are effective and add value, more balanced and simplified. She could no longer settle for clothes to be just that...clothes. They must be able to do more, and we deserve more. At Millevise we explore the endless ways to create an emotional and long-lasting connection with our designs starting with the fit, high-quality materials, and committed to an eco-friendly process.
Married to a handsome and kind Italian, the brand name Millevise was inspired by the two different cultures and aspirations. Millevise means a thousand dreams, a combination of the Italian "Mille" (thousand) and Romanian "vise" (dreams). A desire for beautiful, excellent quality products, inspired to improve our overall life quality. All the products are designed in New York, initial production made locally and partner with trusted vendors globally. Collaboration with our vendors and customers is extremely important and valuable in every way. Together we set high expectations for every design to push the limits of innovation and function. It all starts with one dream. Join us!
Dream on, dream with us,
