We are milo+nicki—an energetic, indomitable duo who love hard and care deeply about those closest to us and the planet we live on.
But first, let’s rewind.
milo+nicki was born a few years back, 8 to be exact; the moment we signed the official adoption papers and the 10th lab at a foster ranch out in west Texas became Milo Patel. Fast forward a bit, Milo and I are inseparable. We have been attached at the hip- or is it tail? We have hit many highs, lows, and the ride so far has been a rollercoaster. Everything that happens to me seems to happen to him.
In 2014, I hit rock bottom. With the paralyzing pressure to achieve and do more combined with a few huge life hurdles, my health started to deteriorate. Being inseparable, my pup Milo’s health began to decline, too. And no doctor or specialist had a remedy.
I lived in fear of not knowing what the next day, hour, or minute held for us.
In our pursuit to grow stronger and healthier, we turned to our roots. Family, love, and faith became our medicine. It is here I began to understand the delicate relationship between our bodies, the environment, and our health. Plus, I begin to realize the impacts of societal pressures and life changes females face on a day-to-day.
This became my focus for change. By combining our health rollercoaster with my love for fashion, my mission to empower women, and my drive to bring awareness to a deep-rooted destructive consumer industry, I came to create milo+nicki, a vibrant, cruelty-free sustainable women’s line rooted to empower women and bring love, transparency, culture and ethicality back to the world of fashion..
It’s been a wild ride! But, the love that we share to those closest to us, and the passion for the longevity of our health and our world, remain at the forefront of our lives. We will always be about the journey, and never the destination.
As we conquer our fears, take a leap of faith, never give up on ourselves, and live a life full of color, we hope to empower you to do the same.

Made out of banana waste, the produced in NYC collection is biodegradable, sustainable, ethical, fair-trade, vegan, cruelty-free, and all handmade and hand-dyed. We believe that women can do it all so why can’t the clothing we wear.
