I had the pleasure meeting Milly’s designer Michelle Smith at the Milly for Clinique Cosmetics Bag launch party at Bloomigdale’s 59th street in New York City. I was also lucky to see a fashion show presenting the fabulous Milly designs. I was in love with the clothes. The Milly collection was cut for the elegant woman yet a woman that is adventurist, likes to be outdoors, and enjoys life. Very Jackie O. Very feminine and pretty. When photographing with Michelle we both looked at each other and said at the same time. Michelle to Marta: I love your T Shirt. Marta to Michelle: And I love your dress. Getting a compliment from a fashion designer feels amazing.
