Starry Eyes is a fashion brand based in Sweden that specialises in clothes for people with a passion for personal style and vintage clothing.
Everything is one-size and fits sizes 34-44.
Starry Eyes doesn’t follow seasonal trends and as a company works with a sustainable slow fashion approach. Mia works closely with a family owned factory in Bali and two teams of tailors in Vietnam.
It is of great importance that the working conditions are up to standard and that there is a mutual professional and personal respect with the people she works with.
Swedish born designer Mia Redemo has got a past in musical theatre, retail and TV. She lived in London for 9 years but moved to Stockholm in 2014 and started Starry Eyes. Mia now lives in Gothenburg and in September 2018 she opened the first Starry Eyes shop.
“Clothes has always been a way for me to express myself and Starry Eyes is a brand for people with a personal style who don’t take fashion too seriously.”
Trained in Pattern Construction & Fashion Design at Tillskärarakademin in Stockholm (Stockholm Academy of Cutting & Tailoring) , graduated 2016.

In Saigon I work with two teams of tailors, Thao Anh and her brilliant team whom I got in contact with through a mutual friend in London and Thuy that I met at one of the fabric markets.
Prices are decided by Thao Anh and Thuy and it is not in my interest to negotiate or question the price value they put on their and their employees work.
Desak is a family owned clothing factory in Denpasar with 25 female and male employees. Wife and husband Putu and Gede started the company 15 years ago and some of the employees have worked there for over 10 years.
Production prices are standard Desak prices.
The latest news is that some of the new products are made from vintage 1980's silk sari's from India. It is difficult, when using second hand material, to confirm the exact silk precent amount in each sari and therefore I have decided to write "silk mix" on the washing label.
Giving a second chance to a beautiful fabric adds an extra bit of magic to the Starry Eyes piece and makes it even more unique.
The gorgoeus printed viscose and rayon fabrics used for the Starry Eyes products comes from local markets in Vietnam and fabric shops in Bali (the origins of the fabrics is unknown) and each print is chosen with love.
Viscose and rayon is not considered fully sustainable but there is little fabric waste because of the one-size designs and the production is small.
Remember, airing your clothes instead of washing will make them last longer and helps the environment!
