About Us

Born out of a desire to express creativity on an everyday versatile wardrobe staple that can be thrown over exercise gear for a walk on the farm or your LBD and taken out to dinner. Dreamt up whilst sitting on the farm-house verandah creating the perfect mix of functional utility and creative fashion.  We hope you love wearing your shacket as much as we have loved creating the brand. Each design will be limited to 250 shackets and comes with a commemorative postcard with your shacket's individual number, a perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.

Dette and Susan

The idea for Mila-East shackets would still just be floating around without the drive of Dette to help see it through to completion. I first mentioned it to Dette as she was doing my hair ( Owner of the award winning Toni and Guy Broadbeach ) and she instantly thought that it was an interesting concept. So began the journey through sourcing manufacturers and building websites and basically going along on the journey to bring Mila-East to you. As the mother of four children I ( Susan) have had to become a bit better at multitasking, and Dette with her two children and business has also become a juggling expert.

It has been a lot of fun and we look forward to learning more about you as we continue to produce our limited edition shackets with each season.
