The history of the brand
In 2021, the brand launched a couture line. Leonie Hanne wore a custom Milla Nova dress on the red carpet of the 78th Venice Film Festival.
In 2020, despite the Covid-19 quarantine, Milla Nova managed to realize a long-awaited dream and launch a brand of evening dresses — Milla.
In 2019, Milla Nova held the first public showcase in Barcelona. Lots of celebrities and influencers attended the show.
In 2017, the Milla Nova mono brand boutique opened in Lviv. This year was significant for the development of the brand.
In 2002, sisters Zoryana and Iryna Senyshyn opened their atelier, which launched the Milla Nova brand. The company was in this composition for six months, and later Mira Brewusz joined the team, who is still responsible for the brand's creativity. Then, the team expanded to 15 people, some of whom still work at Milla Nova.
95% of the company's employees are women. The brand takes into account the needs of its employees and does everything to provide the most comfortable working conditions. For example, the company provides children's rooms for those children who cannot be left with babysitters or taken to kindergarten.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, the brand's factory sewed masks and protective suits for the medical staff of Lviv hospitals.
On February 24th Russia invaded Ukraine. The lives of 43 million Ukrainians collapsed. Russian troops began to destroy Ukrainian cities, and civilian objects, kill, torture, starve, kidnap and rape Ukrainians. Since the invasion, Russian troops have fired 2500 missiles against Ukraine. And this number increases as you read this article.
Those Ukrainians who get lucky enough to be born in the central and western parts of the country have no time to process the fact of the genocide of their own nation. They had to be strong and go on track as soon as possible to keep the country's economy stable and to make sure the country can fight back.
Milla Nova management didn’t lose it, but on the contrary with a cold mind initiated a Business Continuity Plan.
Firstly, the brand opened another production facility over the Western border in Warsaw and partly evacuated 70 members of their team – including seamstresses, production managers, and staff involved in logistics and purchasing – along with their family members and children.
Then, the brand has come up with numerous initiatives to support Ukraine.
“We hope that our donations to the army will soon be transformed into donations for rebuilding the country” — says Ulyana Kyrychuk, the CEO of Milla Nova for British Vogue.
