No one knows you quite like your sister. Our first friends in life and often our best friends for life. Sisters know each other better than anyone else. Growing up in a close knit family Hailey and Kate better known as Milly and Eugene spent all their time together as kids and now with the launch of their new business are still spending all their time together as adults.
With a growing trend emerging of sisters going into business together Kate and Hailey prove how going into business with your family can succeed as a good business move especially when you have such a main strength of sisterhood within a partnership. We've seen it work before with successful Australian businesses also launched by sisters, in particular Nicky and Simone Zimmermann and their iconic Australian fashion label they created together. They believe in the benefits of going into business with your sister as they strongly acknowledge their relationship with one another as "the cornerstone to Zimmermann's longevity and success." Kate and Hailey also agree with the strength of family in business as their mutual love and respect for one another has allowed their partnership to grow and flourish into bigger and better business movements shaping what we know as Milly and Eugene today. Through the launch of Milly and Eugene the girls have been able to become even closer especially when going on overseas buying trips together and involving the whole family within their exciting new adventure.
As sisters who have always gotten along well together they continue to combine their close relationship and strong business drive within their up and coming business and are having an absolute ball while doing so. Naturally as sisters they can bicker and boss each other around but they wouldn't want to have it any other way. Besides, nothing quite beats having your sister by your side. So come and visit us in store in Charing Cross or check out our online store to see the girls' hardwork and fun atmosphere shine through their beautiful and diverse products available nationwide.
Love Milly and Eugene xx

Milly And Eugene was dreamt up by two young creative sisters with a passion for all things beautiful.
The decision to call their new venture, Milly and Eugene, evolved from the nicknames they were called as young girls. Hailey, was often referred to as Milly by Mum, Jude, as she named her after the famous 60's actress, Hayley Mills. Kate, was given the nickname Eugene, by her older brother, Martin, who thought it was funny to call her an "uncool name" (at the time) and enjoyed the torment and reaction he received whilst using it.
It was after an inspiring family holiday and both having recently completed home renovations, Hailey and Kate's desire to start a homewares company was in the making. Owning a chain of restaurants and retail businesses between them, the sisters are no strangers to hard work and the success that comes with it, so combining their passion and talent, it's no doubt, Milly and Eugene had captured the hearts of their fans. Milly and Eugene has evolved over the years, starting out as a small online business run from the garage of their homes, into their very own retail store and now into wholesaling, their beautiful wares to some of the best retailers around Australia.
It's Hailey and Kate's aspiration to bring you unique and desirable pieces, that have been hand selected from around the world, into your home.
