About Us

“Elevated style, iconic designs”

Our provenance

In 1981 with a loan of £100, Karen Millen bought 1,000 metres of cotton and began creating white shirts to sell to friends. The rest, as they say, is history.

Four decades later, we’ve evolved into a destination for thoughtful styles with exceptional design, creative talent and craftsmanship we’re truly proud of.

The Karen Millen logo is an assurance of enduring style and the utmost quality – now and forever.


Our philosophy

Central to our vision is the vow to only create pieces you’ll wear, and love, for years to come.

When it comes to fabrics and finishes, form and fit, we’re fastidious about quality, and thoughtfully consider every button, stitch and seam. As such, we hold the creation process of our collections in the highest regard.

“Everlasting designs with luxury status at attainable prices”

Our collections

Our design philosophy is articulated through a collection of versatile offerings that can be slipped into your existing wardrobe with ease. Think elevated basics, elegant occasionwear and tailoring that fits like a glove.

From our signature best-selling shapes to bespoke prints and trimmings, exclusivity is at the heart of our appeal. We transcend catwalk trends in favour of design that lasts beyond a season or a year. We hero forever pieces that are endlessly appealing and always relevant. Think of it as a modern vision with timeless sensibility.
