Michael Milea opened Michael Milea Ltd., after having been a designer as well as a production manager for a chain of retail stores. The company made a line of junior tops and blouses and eventually realized sales of eleven million. We do not know the dates his company started or ended.
In February of 1976, Mr. Milea formed a partnership with Betsey Johnson. They created a sporty junior line of clothing “sweatshirt dressing”. Some of the labels we have seen appear with both their names on the label only, while others have been found with their names under Star Ferry. We are unsure when the collaboration ended.
