Milena Nacheva has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in “Fashion” and “Fashion and Business Strategies” from the New Bulgarian University. She is currently working on a Ph.D. dissertation – “Patternmaking and draping in fashion design” and teaches in the “Fashion” program at New Bulgarian University.
She is the owner of MILENA NACHEVA fashion studio, which is the showroom of her self-named brand and atelier. She makes ready-to-wear, made-to-measure, and custom designs. The most challenging projects for her are the wedding dresses.
Over the years she has gained experience as a patternmaker and fashion designer in several Bulgarian brands, works as a freelance fashion designer, and participates in conceptual design projects and exhibitions.
Her design is casual and elegant, sometimes slightly ostentatious. She does not precisely follow the trends, but aims to create timeless clothes with a modern and up-to-date style. Precise constructions with complex elements are significant for her work. She pays special attention to the selection of fabrics and the craftsmanship quality.
