Milo tricot Guerrilla Studio and shop was conceived as a creative and productive response to the fashion system. We respond to technological, social and cultural changes by having a flexible and ever evolving structure that allows for actions or activities to be performed in impromptu ways that are responsive, fast and innovative.
The foundation of our work builds on the concepts of:
CREATE, COLLABORATE AND SUPPORT
WHAT "GUERRILLA" MEANS?
noun - a member of a small independent group taking part in irregular fighting, typically against larger regular forces. Referring to actions or activities performed in an impromptu way, often without authorization. synonyms: freedom fighter, member of the resistance, partisan...
We have the strength to walk alone or to walk together as part of the group. When we walk together, we are one.
Our society's disconnection with our environment and with each other has inspired us to embrace the truth and the uniqueness within ourselves and the beautiful communities around the world. We recognized that power structures are oppressing the voices and the rights to thrive for many. It lays in our hands to challenge the status quo, starting within ourselves and the way we work, play and care for each other.
We are part of an interconnected whole; Let’s share our knowledge, passions, and energy to become the changes we want to see in the world.
A portion of our total profit are benefiting selected philanthropic causes. The causes we choose to support varies depending on what we find to be of importance given timely events and urgency.
