A majority of people may associate Black Milk with the rapper but the style conscious among you will associate Black Milk with clothes. Black Milk is a rebel brand run by an innovative designer who had a vision to create something Foxy for women which had that WOW factor. If I was a lady there’s so many styles I’d wear from Black Milk’s collection, especially the cape!!!
“At the beginning of 2009 I walked into a little sewing shop and bought two shiny new sewing machines. It was a slightly unusual sight – a shop full of older women making patchwork quilts for their grandkids… and me. I didn’t mind. It seemed very punk at the time. My idea was fairly simple – I would teach myself to sew, buy some beautiful stretch fabrics, and make insane leggings. Then I would find girls who would get into them. Girls who wanted leggings that could pack a little more punch than the ones on offer at your average department store. I made the leggings, found the girls, and so was born Black Milk.”
“Things were slow initially, but the girls who bought the leggings were always really positive, which was super-encouraging for me in the early days. The turning point came when I decided that I was going to figure out a way to wrap chains around a pair of leggings. It took me a week of drawing, sketching, scheming and failing before I finally figured out how to do it. I called them Cages, and they were a minor cult hit. From that time on, so many girls were ordering Black Milk gear that it became a full time job.”
“We’ve come a long way since those early days sewing leggings at midnight on the kitchen table. We’ve sold thousands of pairs of leggings all over the world. We’ve been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers and blogs from the local paper to Vogue. Best of all, Black Milk has now got score a reputation as one of the most exciting designer leggings labels in the world. But a lot is still the same. I still stay up to midnight sewing. I still personally design each piece. I still get a buzz every time a girl emails me a picture and tells me how many people commented when she wore out her Black Milk leggings.”
“Yeah, it’s still fun.”
This is not a silly excuse to post pictures of beautiful women in leggings, I’ve been a fan from afar for the past year or so. Now that I have the outlet to let everyone know about the company, I’ve decided that it’s the right time for my readers, who hadn’t known about Black Milk previously, to become enlightened.
Black Milk, Up In The Ear salute you for being a creatively innovative self taught rebel with a vision. May you have lifetimes of prosperous creation, and if you ever need a place to showcase your new designs, holla at moi and I’ll be honoured to post something for y’all!!!
Peace & Love
