We’ve created an Art atelier for Spring Summer 15 celebrating the symbiotic relationship between art and fashion. Housed in our Shoreditch headquarters, our Atelier is intrinsic to the way we design and create our collections at Karen Millen. Every piece starts with a sketch in our design studio and the entire creative process takes place in-house. Our atelier collections aim to showcase our signature craftsmanship, in turn allowing us to create experimental and exclusive fashion pieces with a unique focus on technique, creativity and innovation.
A dedicated and long-term supporter of emerging talent within the industry, we are privileged to work with Graduate Fashion Week on their mentoring program. This season, the protégés have been integral to the atelier collection, with our graduate painters and artists showcasing their exceptional works on fabric through a series of unique prints.
Emblazoned with digital watercolours, freehand drawings and photographic cityscapes, the result is a curated collection of beautifully designed, one of a kind investment pieces.
From hand-drawn sketches to couture-inspired techniques, every garment in the atelier collection has a story to tell. Be it the leather biker, pleated maxi skirt or studded tee, paint-box brights saturate our signature styles, as if spilling straight from the tube. Five exclusive prints have been painted and digitally generated in-house.
The Karen Millen Art Atelier is available in the Knightsbridge Flagship store and Bloomingdales 59th Street, New York.Shop New In
