We love the feeling of coming in contact with the end product of a creative mind. You don’t get such feelings from fast fashion. For this reason Story to Line, an e-shop that is focused on putting a spot light on Belgian creatives has been born. Millie Rolin Jacquemyns, the fearless entrepreneur, is the brain behind this laudable project. In her words, she was inspired to create her company because according to her “It’s been a while since I stopped going to fast-fashion boutiques. I no longer felt any excitement. I bought clothes that I forgot the very next day and that meant nothing to me. While working for the MAD (Brussels Center for Fashion and Design), I met passionate creators who touched me. I wanted to give people again the opportunity to feel this excitement. “. It is not hard to understand why Millie has decided to create to Story to Line, fast fashion is an ephemeral beauty and dazzle set of lights that, suddenly the thrill and excitement are gone.

As accurate as eclectic, Sara Esther grew up in a world inspired by her family of jewelers. Passionated by handcraft goods, the young Belgian studied at the “arts et métiers” school of Brussels before creating her eponymous brand in 2013.
