Lamilago Bespoke Tailors is the brainchild of Milap, the founder and master tailor of Lamilago. Raised within a proud family of tailors, for as long as Milap can remember, almost every waking moment of his childhood was spent in the presence of at least one tailor. At the age of 10, the foundations of Milap’s tailoring career were set when his father tasked him to assist the family business after school.
Each day Milap would finish his classes and spend the evening cycling across the city, transporting unfinished goods between stores and purchasing the various materials required to keep the business running. In hindsight, Milap recalls how such a humble task provided him with a rare opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of how to maintain operations and the many steps involved in completing even the most basic garment. These lessons continued until Milap reached the age of 13, where his true tailoring journey started when he was tasked with marking buttonholes, pressing shirts, and using his grandfather’s vintage singer paddle sewing machine to furnish pairs of shorts.
Despite his early success and passion for tailoring, Milap’s apprenticeship was tragically derailed before his 17th birthday when his father passed away from a heart attack. It was this event that spurred Milap to withdraw from his university studies and make a promise to his father that he would become a world-class tailor and carry on the family legacy.
Milap describes the subsequent years as the hardest that he will likely ever have to face, as immediately after his father’s death, the family business started to collapse without the wealth of knowledge Milap’s father possessed. The work available rapidly disappeared, and the longstanding staff was required to seek new employment opportunities elsewhere. Resolutely, Milap weathered the storm and committed himself to studying his father’s patterns and notes so that he could one day restore the family business to its former glory.
Four years later, Milap had not only achieved his initial goal of rebuilding the family business but had also established an additional store to provide employment for all the original staff and the many more he had gained throughout the years. It was at this point Milap decided it was time for a new chapter of life and promptly gave the two stores to his brother and pursued a new life in Australia.
Since moving to Australia, Milap was privileged with the opportunity to work under Josef Philadefia at 5 Star Alterion, learning further intricacies of the tailoring art before pursuing his dream of creating a premium bespoke tailoring venture in the heart of Adelaide.
