We engage with our customers as we do with friends. Our experiences are intentionally intimate and reflect respect, emotional intelligence, a sense of humor, and storytelling. We act with transparency and openness because we can and because we all should.

OUR PRACTICES

At Michail, we strongly believe in the ethical production of our collections. Our artisan pieces are made by our own atelier and local, high-quality production firms. We believe in fair wages and high-quality labor standards for our employees and those we partner with. We are a fair opportunities employer who advocates for equality irrespective of sex, race, religion, and or sexual orientation.

OUR CLIENTS: THE MICHAIL WOMAN

The Michail woman is confident and not opposed to being the center of attention. Her look is chic, classic, but always with a modern twist. She loves building a wardrobe with rare styles that have limited availability. The Michail woman is comfortable in her skin. She is beautiful at any age or size.

OUR HISTORY: ABOUT MICHAIL

Michail Sykianakis was born and raised in Athens and Crete, Greece. At the age of 19, he moved to London to realize his dream of studying fashion. He applied and was accepted at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, where he graduated in 1996 with a BA Hons in womenswear.

He went on to work for several designers, including Julien Mc Donald, Sophia Kokosalaki, and Alexander Mc Queen. In 2008 he was offered the position of Senior Designer for the Max Azria runway collection in Los Angeles, which he accepted.

During his time at Max Azria, Michail designed many successful collections and dressed several A-list celebrities such as Angelina Jolie at Critics Choice and Sag Awards, Zoe Zaldana, Lucy Liu, Rachel Bilson, Claire Wright Penn, and many more.

In 2015, he began to offer dresses exclusively for the Hollywood elite, and in 2018, Michail created his eponymous brand, "MICHAIL" selling it first to boutiques worldwide and later exclusively online directly to the women he loves.


WHO WE ARE: MICHAIL TODAY

The Michail brand offers limited edition, artisanal, unique pieces that draw all the attention to the woman who wears them. A dramatic element is a key to all Michail's designs. He uses hand draping couture techniques to sculpt the silhouettes and style details directly on the body. This design approach results in pieces that are more three-dimensional, comfortable, and flatter the female form. Michail is more of an online boutique than an online brand. Maintaining excellent customer service is very important to us. Our clients can rely on our quick response to any questions or help they may need.
