STELLA M'LIA is a tween- and teen-centric brand of special occasion dresses for 8-14/16 year old girls. Launched in the summer of 2010, STELLA M'LIA's inaugural line consists of party dresses inspired by venerated designers like Versace, Proenza Schouler and Valentino and executed in a way that's young, fresh and relevant to the party-going teen girl.

STELLA M'LIA dresses are primarily of satin, tulle, taffeta and matte jersey. They are designed to fit and flatter the young girl and celebrate her inner Cinderella. Edgy but decidedly anti-fashion victim, the STELLA M'LIA girl is on-trend, upbeat and confident. She is a modern, upscale and polished young sophisticate who is not afraid to stand out and shine.

STELLA M'LIA is the brainchild of a mom, ex-corporate banker and fashion design junkie who has been designing special occasion clothes for herself since she was in her teens. She comes dangerously armed with the collective input and inspiration of many 13-year old fashion critics around her hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut, many dear friends and generous moms, and benefits from collaborating with creative co-conspirators in the industry from the west coast.
