Rubino is one of my personal favourites. If you are a fan of Italian perfumes or cotton scents that are vitally alive and almost ‘watery’ or juicy with fragrance, any one of the Cheri Milaney quartet will appeal.
Award winning designer Cheri Milaney takes inspiration from Italian style and loves creating clothes with sexy romantic touches. She was one of the first designers to feature ,real, women of all shapes and sizes and colours on the catwalk.
I first met Cheri when I was lucky enough to be part of her photo shoot, she is such a lovely lady and is really passionate about fashion and her clothing range. It was such an exciting day and I loved being able to try a lot of the pieces on. Her clothes are so different and unique and yet easy to wear. Obviously after trying so many of the outfits on I couldn’t help but be tempted into buying some of them…….actually quite a few of them 😊 I know when I wear her clothes that nobody else is going to be in the same outfit. Her range is amazing, creative and stylish – what’s not to like!
I can’t describe how much I love the scents of Milani Cultura. I have had the pleasure of smelling them all and I would be happy to wear all of them or give them as gifts. Beautiful scents without being over powering, and stunning bottles. My personal favourite is Perla, the only negative is my 7 year old daughter has also fallen in love with it so I need to share!
Cheri Milaney has a unique style, reflecting in all of her designs which enhances our feminine curves. I love her collections. When I’m wearing anything from the Cheri Milaney collection, I feel instantly feminine! I don’t feel I’m wearing anything! the fit is perfect and I always feel a sense of freedom and confidence!
Being the grateful wearer of at least a dozen of Cheri Milaney’s unusual fashion pieces, I always look forward to viewing each new outstanding collection. Her distinctive designs made up of lovely materials, provide striking yet versatile outfits – a great investment. Highly recommended!
My mood often dictates my day to day look from the way I wear my hair, whether I opt for jeans or a dress, even my scent profile changes on a regular basis. Changing up my perfume can really reflect my mood and my entire style, that’s why I am so excited about Cheri Milaney’s new Facet Fragrance Collection.
Cheri Milaney’s designs are timeless and definitely investment pieces. Her cut is exquisite. I have been buying her designs for several years and always look forward to seeing her new pieces. Everytime I wear one of her designs I always get compliments so I keep adding new pieces to my waredrobe!
Cheri is very easy to work with and she always suggests that I try on pieces that I would never think of and they always work! I love that she doesn’t blindly follow the trends but really puts herself in the customers shoes and understands what fit is all about. I really love the way she mixes different patterns and textures and pairs them together.
I’m a size 16 and I feel like I’m a size 14 when I put Cheri Milaney designs on. They are so flattering! I also love how flexible she is to work with. She has really helped me to be more expressive and confident.
Milaney made a splash as a featured designer at the Olympic fashion show in Turino. She courted controversy and won fans at the Toronto Fashion Week when she sent 22 ‘real women’ down the runway ranging in age from 25 to 60 years old and from size 2 to size 14.
I have recently purchase some Cheri Milaney’s designs and I cant say enough! I love them. The fabrics are sumptuous and of the highest quality. My husband said they look better than anything I’ve ever worn!
Cheri Milaney designs are timeless. I’m so happy wearing them, they always bring me compliments on my Designer.
Award winning designer Cheri Milaney takes inspiration from Italian and loves creating clothes with sexy romantic touches. She was one of the first designers to feature real women of all shapes sizes and colours on the catwalk.
My whole inspiration for what I do in my design business comes from Italy.
The Calgary native is tapping the Italian verb for comfort and contentment for inspiration and the contrast between the soothing natural environment and the concrete urban life for her inspiration. “We’ll be showing the contrast by using ruching and gathering on simple fabrics to create a more complex look and using sheer printed chiffons to show the light and pleasurable side of life,” says Milaney.
In a testament to real women, Milaney closed the show with some notable names she dubbed “Role Models” in the show program: former Much Music VJ Erica Ehm, founder of the Yummy Mummy Club, along with Cobi Ladner, former editor of Canadian House & Home magazine, singer Amy Sky, CBC-TV GM Kirstine Stewart and actress Tonya Lee Williams of “The Young and the Restless” fame.
Cheri Milaney Women of the Week. Designer Cheri Milaney caused a stir during Toronto Fashion Week by doing something revolutionary for the industry: using “normal” women as models.
It was the first time a designer showed 3 sizes on the runway at a major fashion show – four, eight and fourteen. “The result was just outstanding.” says Milaney. “These women were so gracious and beautiful. They brought the clothes to life.”
Milaney’s made-in-Vancouver collection is filling a major gap in the market.
The Vancouver fashion designer, who caters to curves, is on a mission to help women celebrate their bodies. “I’m hoping were going to change people’s perceptions. I’m hoping the industry will start taking notice and have some realistic expectations of what real beauty should be.”
Cheri may be the first designer who was able to connect with both the media and consumers through one event.
Any one of the bright elements in this ensemble from Canadian designer Cheri Milaney will inject seasonal zip into your wardrobe. And together they make a citrusy, spring-like statement
In her quest for softness, she often uses the underside of a fabric: a printed chiffon in already muted roses and aquas becomes Claude Monet-like.
In terms of style, quality, and pure elegant seductiveness, Milaney’s designs easily hold their own against European imports.
The silhouettes are softly tailored giving them a flattering edge. A romantic look that enhances a woman’s femininity is present throughout the line.
Cheri Milaney’s Grace Collection edges towards the higher end but her fluid designs are worth the price if you want to streamline your clothing purchases.
A recent winner of the Matinee Fashion Foundation grant, Milaney has, in just five years, started her own wholesale business selling across Canada and in the US.
