This Scandinavian couple met in 2003 when they were working for the designer Robert Cary-Williams, and found that they shared an interest in the world of the avant-garde. This shared interest, and the constant encouragement of Cary-Williams, together with that of other leading figures in the industry, laid the foundations for the label.

Markus Wilmont won the ITS#FOUR Fashion Collection of the Year Award, and the idea of joining forces led to the founding of the Aminaka Wilmont company. Shortly after this, the label won the 2007 Fashion Fringe Award, presented by Tom Ford.

Since then, the firm has grown steadily and now has an elite clientele, including leading lights from the worlds of music, art and fashion.
