Artist of the Day / Janice Louise Miller

I love Janice’s positive free spirit and fashion sense.  The fact that she uses recycled materials makes what she does just that more interesting to me.

“Glaciermilk is a free spirit that is confident and fun loving. Glaciermilk makes a statement that stands it’s own ground with a positive philosophy that anything is possible. Glaciermilk possesses a secret magic that will bring out the best in you. All Glaciermilk designs are as unique as you are. A product of love; a moment in time that can never and will never be repeated. Glaciermilk is a one of a kind state of mind. Versatile and comfortable, Glacermik is worn for life.

Designer and shop owner, Janice Louise Miller presently resides in her downtown (Montreal) studio which is completely buried under a vast collection of vintage clothes, fabrics, jewelery and random toys found at local thrift shops. Janice is now digging her way out designing her Environmentally Aware Fashion Collection titled “Glaciermilk” which was shown at 2010 Boston Fashion Week as one of the top 3 headlining emerging collections.”
