Millie Askew is currently working on developing a new collection,"Sand A Side" which draws inspiration from New Zealand natural landscape, the adventures we have in them and the D.I.Y nature that is embedded into our culture.
"Sand A Side" focuses on using traditional methods of making and utilizing natural materials to recontextualise the way we stereo-typically view slow fashion by designing garments that fit into a contemporary fashion world.
Millie graduated from Massey University in 2016 with a Bachelor of fashion deign with first class honours.
She won the Ballentyne’s emerging designer award in 2018. She still creates ethical slow fashion from her home in Waiarapa.
