The brainchild of Lourdes de Guardiola, Milou’s curated collection is often described as chic, timeless, with an equestrian twist. Daughter of one of Wellington’s pioneer developers, horses became Lourdes’s life at the age of six, ultimately giving way to a successful 15 year career in the show jumping business.
“My husband Michael Morrissey and I have travelled the globe winning championships in the hunters, jumpers and equitation. Michael is a proven international show jumper, having represented team USA on multiple occasions overseas in Europe. I turned to coaching some of the best junior riders at some of the most elite shows around the world. A year ago I decided to venture into another passion of mine, fashion. So I launched MilouPalmBeach.com, an on-line clothing boutique,” says de Guardiola. The equestrian influence is apparent in the cool, effortless, hip but chic Milou collection.
Lourdes’s success and loyal following prompted her to launch a pop-up this past season at Palm Beach’s International Polo club. “I only see great things for this business, with local and international stores on the horizon.”
Private trunk shows continue during the summer with the next one scheduled during a special Happy Hour co-hosted by Ryan Beckett on June 27th at Meat Market Palm Beach!
Meat Market will be offering complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Guests are encouraged to stay for dinner as 10% of proceeds will go towards Danny and Ron’s Rescue in Wellington.
