After several years of exploration, international travel and study, I’ve officially launched the AMY MILBRANDT fashion label!
My journey into fashion began as far back as high school, when I spent some time modeling which gave me some initial exposure to the fashion industry. After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and working for a few years, I enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in San Franciso to deepen my knowledge of the art of fashion and technical skills needed to create quality garments.
My current design inspiration flows from the 40′s and 50′s “Golden Age of Couture” in Paris… iconic actresses the likes of Bridget Bardot, Raquel Welch, and Sophia Loren… and 50’s and 60’s films such as “To Catch a Thief” and “Cleopatra.”
The AMY MILBRANDT Launch Collection is inspired by the Ancient Egyptians. Egypt has always been a place of intrigue to me – I’m fascinated by Egyptian artifacts, Ancient Egyptian mythology, fashion and architecture. There is a mystery about the Egyptians that makes me want to explore…..and so my first collection was influenced by this discovery and imagination. Thank you for your interest in AMY MILBRANDT!
