VienneMilano is a Boston-based hosiery brand and online boutique specializing in Italian thigh high stockings.[1] Its website was officially launched November 1, 2011.[2]

The brand's name comes from the first name of founder, Vienne Cheung, and from Milan, Italy, a city well known for its fashion.[2]

VienneMilano is one of Multiverse Commerce's brands and microstores.[3]

Origin/History[edit]

VienneMilano was created as a result of Cheung’s interest in Italian hosiery[2] and her wish to change the stereotypes surrounding thigh highs[4] in America.[5] Cheung wanted to bring the high quality thigh highs she found traveling through Europe to the US market.[1]

On November 1, 2011 along with the launch of the VienneMilano online boutique their first line of thigh highs was introduced.[3]

On November 11, 2011 VienneMilano held a fashion show and keynote by Giuseppe Pastorelli, the Italian General Consul for New England, to celebrate the brand's launch and first collection at the InterContinental Boston.[6]
