Founder and designer Brooke Wilen began hand knitting over 10 years ago as a hobby. After college Wilen began a career in the film industry in her hometown of Los Angeles. On the job Wilen would often wear pieces of her own design. She received so many requests for custom pieces that she decided to change her career path and start her own clothing line!
Wilen garments are classic, comfortable and stylish. The goal of Wilen is to design for todayís woman who has so much on her plate. Most pieces can easily go from day to night. Right from a business meeting to an evening work event or even a date! Wilen designs with her and her friends in mind: Real women that want to be professional but donít want to have to do it in pantyhose and a suit!
Inspired by vintage designs and flea market finds, Wilen put out her first full collection for Fall of 2006. Each piece is made from the finest and most luxurious Italian yarns. Wilen has stayed true to her roots by keeping the line entirely knit which allows for a comfortable and easy fit. Now the garments are constructed on a knitting machine as opposed to by hand. However, Wilen will still make the occasional custom piece!
