“Who you are, as you are has always been enough”
The journey of Mille Collines began in Barcelona, Spain with Ines Cuatrecasas and Marc Oliver. Fashion designers by training, the pair were eager to engage in something bold, creative, and adventurous. A trip to Rwanda in 2008 and an introduction to Antoinette, a local dressmaker, ultimately led to Marc and Ines moving to Kigali where they developed their first collection in partnership with Antoinette. A year later, mille collines was born and soon grew into full-fledged fashion Atellier. Today, it is fully owned and operated by the Kigali team that helped build mille collines. In partnership with the Atelier and with a renewed focus on design and retail the mille collines ethos remains unchanged– blending the creativity, strength and culture of the African spirit with ever evolving global trends. The brand’s attention to detail and passion for telling beautiful stories will continue to shine through every mille collines product.
