Founded in 2012 by Sylvie Millstein, HELLESSY is a day-to-evening designer collection focused on the modern philosophy of dressing women whose lives are organized around a need for pared-down elegance that is versatile and thoughtfully constructed.
Millstein melded her multi-cultural background, expertise in high fashion and experience as a design-driven New Yorker, to create a collection of luxurious staples that celebrate independence, intelligence and beauty. The collection is made in America, and integrates impeccable fabrics and detailing with superb fit, precise construction, and wearability.
Originally launched with a strong focus on elevated daywear and knits, the brand has since grown into a full designer collection inclusive of outerwear, blazers, tops, bottoms, cocktail dresses, evening wear and select accessories.
In a few short years, HELLESSY has been featured in numerous top-tier publications including: Elle, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Vogue.com and Women’s Wear Daily and worn by a-list celebrities and influencers such as Kerry Washington, Malin Akerman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Selena Gomez, Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge.
HELLESSY was a nominee for the International Woolmark prize 2016.
