About Me

French-born, passionate about ways to disrupt the intimate apparel space.  I have experience in Luxury, Fashion, E-commerce, Marketplaces, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Blockchain, Startups and Sales. 

I believe that a large untapped potential resides in online fitting for lingerie. A gap where little technological improvement has been made, to the detriment of many women: I want to remove the pain of lingerie shopping using e-commerce, with a mix of chatbots and artificially intelligent software for the good of women’s health and confidence.   

"Diagnosed with a breast tumor at the age of 21, the former Management and IT graduate has for mission to connect, celebrate women’s body and empower more women to love their bodies using the tools she knows best - lingerie and technology. With a blend of algorithm​​ ​and lingerie stylists​,​ she is creating the ultimate pain​-​free lingerie shopping experience: a pioneering service in the modern lingerie shopping."

Milly heads 2 tech-focused lingerie startups: The lingerie Lab and Box of Intimates. The former is the first-of-​ its​-​kind curated marketplace for emerging luxury lingerie designers; the later, Box of Intimates, is UK’s latest lingerie subscription box providing surprise fashionable delicacies made be independent designers from around the world. Both platforms serve as ​a ​pilot to deploy the latest technologies, enabling fresher ways to shop for lingerie! 

Business remains bootstrapped but Milly is early hunting for investors to help it launch/scale.

A regular FashionTech and E-commerce Innovation speaker/panelist, she is also a supporter of women who code charities and always look for opportunities to support, advise and empower the next generation of female entrepreneurs.

To discuss, email me at: milly@lingerie-lab.com

I look forward to hear from you!
