Featured Artisan: Mille’s passion for fashion
Danish fashionista Mille Rostock is pursuing her passion in life. Being a former business coach, Mille recognizes the importance of following your dreams to succeed in life. Sewing since the age of 13, she now turns colourful textiles into wearable art in the form of scarves and turbans. For Mille “style is all about having fun no matter age, shape or size”.
Mille founded her label millerostock in 2007. Creating scarves in superlative cashmere, wool, cotton and silk, millerostock is a combination of innovative, with ‘of the moment’ trends. Mille describes her scarves as “urban, modern, timeless and luxurious”.

millerostock is about beautiful quality fashion, but it does not have to be at the cost of the environment or those who manufacture it. Mille incorporates ‘slow fashion’ which is an attempt to slow the rate of change in seasonal fashion down to a more sustainable pace. Hoping that her well thought out designs will last more than a season, Mille explains that ‘fast’ fashion “causes over consumption, which costs many resources”. This is exactly the reason why Mille creates these fashionable accessories, so that style can be adapted to individuals. The variety of colours and designs available can jazz up any outfit over a prolonged period of time, making it easier to ‘slow down’ and sustain a functional wardrobe and save the environment a little bit at a time.
Mille offers style advice on her blog, adding “the outfits I suggest for daily wear and different occasions are just suggestions. I truly believe that authentic style comes from within and you must always remain true to yourself”.
Add a little pizzazz to your personal style by visiting ARTE this Friday. You can find Mille there on a regular basis, as well as many of the other fashion and accessories artisans we have on offer.
