BEHIND THE BRAND: MY CHAMELEON


My Chameleon is my favourite Australian online boutique. The pieces they carry are carefully curated and are for the woman I aspire to be: minimal, chic and polished. I took the liberty of getting a little insight into the world of My Chameleon through the gorgeous Mill, who fits the MC aesthetic to a tee. This is the start of a little series that looks at the people working behind the scenes of brands that I absolutely adore. Read on to learn more about Mill and My Chameleon!



Name: MILL
Age: 25
Starsign: LIBRA
Current location: DARLING POINT
Originally from: BUNGENDORE, NSW

Tell us a bit about how you started at My Chameleon.
My Chameleon advertised an internship positions when I was finishing my degree in Arts and Science and unsure about what to do next. The questions on the applications were not the norm, one questions asked for images that inspire me. From these questions I knew that working for My Chameleon would offer something completely different to any other roles I was looking at.

And what is your role there?
Throughout the internship I was able to observe every aspect of the business from processing orders, buying, liaising with designers, copywriting, styling, to working with the media. The My Chameleon team was always happy to answer any questions and allowed me to engage with various tasks and roles within the business. When the internship ended, I moved into a paid part time role and then became the full-time Retail Coordinator, managing sales and customer care.

The best part about your job?
Working with new designers and also viewing the new collections each season, but its terrible for my savings. Its also always nice to hear from our customers that they love our selections, service and the whole My Chameleon experience.

Whats on your current wishlist?
  1. JEROME DREYFUSS MOMO MINI BAG IN LEOPARD
  2. JACQUEMUS LA ROBE DROITE
  3. CACHAREL PLEATED TUNIC POPLIN SHIRT
  4. EYTYS MOTHER WHITE CANVAS SNEAKER
  5. ORGANIC BY JOHN PATRICK COMBO PULLOVER 

Signature scent?
Balmain Eau DIvoire or Chanel Chance  Fraiche

On your desk?
At the moment, post it notes, strawberries and many pens in different colours.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Sticky Fingers // Little May// A$AP Rocky// Milky Chance // Bonobo // Jungle //Childish Gambino // French Lessons

The most treasured item in your wardrobe?
The Acne leather jacket I received for my 21st birthday.

In what ways are you a chameleon?
Basically I wear the same thing every day - theres a joke in the office that whenever someone is wearing black trousers, stripes and sneakers in the office that I am their style icon for the day.

Any girl crushes?
Alexa Chung // Emmanuelle Alt // The French - theyre always so cool.

Something you're looking forward to?
Im really, really loosely planning a trip to Japan for next year, its a place I have always wanted to visit.

Also I have been part of the Creative team for Secret Garden Festival for the last five years. Planning and preparations for 2015 are kicking off now and being one of the creative leads for main stage styling is exciting.  There are some amazing things set to happen for the next festival, having a huge team of artists and musicians all volunteering their time and ideas to make a festival is incredible.
