First homeware collection by British textile designer Millie Bridget Henry is inspired by the wild and natural environments on Earth

Today, British textile designer Millie Bridget Henry previewed her brand's first homeware collection which carries the name 'The Wilderness' and will be launched on 11 April. The designer specializes in hand drawn prints for men's accessories. After finishing her studies at the Winchester School of Art in 2010 and through the years in several internships in fashion houses, Millie Bridget Henry worked at the Savile Row tailors 'Huntsman' where she discovered her love for men's accessories. In 2016, she joined the team of conservators of the Royal Collection at Buckingham Palace, in 2017 after an internship at Zandra Rhodes, the designer began to plan her own design studio which was started one year later in 2018 with a collection of men's pocket squares. Today, the men's accessories are stocked at Budd, Benson & Clegg, Mason & Sons, or Montague Ede.

Millie Bridget Henry about the launch of her first homeware collection: "The last two years have been incredibly difficult for everyone but as a small business in the early years since inception it was extremely disheartening. There have been days I wanted to give up, but I kept pushing and wanted to spend the extra time during lockdown to find ways to expand the business and take it to the next level. I'm really excited to be expanding into homeware and working on a variety of products for the future."
