Millings' shop was located on 63 Old Compton Street [1] in Soho and began designing for British pop stars such as Cliff Richard, Tommy Steele, and Adam Faith in the early 1960s and made the collarless suits the Beatles wore on their first American tour in 1964 as well as the stage suits for the movie Help!. Millings made more than 500 outfits for the band.[2]
