Ones to Watch: Urania Gazelli

In continuing with the theme of presenting inspiring, young  Greek creatives today’s post will be dedicated to the talented Urania Giourmetaki (aka Urania Gazelli).

With studies in industrial design and a bachelor from Middlesex University of London, the 28 year old Urania started playing around with plexiglass in an effort to put a spin on the family business and ended up founding her own bag label in the spring of 2010. She has since managed to gain great numbers of dedicated fans – as well as the attention of the Italian Vogue team & Anna Wintour who, in choosing the most talented new designers, invited her to Milan back in September 2013.

All pieces are lovingly hand- crafted by Urania herself (at present, as she says, her business is  “a one-woman-show”) at the family factory in Koropi, Greece and sold online via  “More is Love”.

Here’s a bit of background information, by Ms. Giourmetaki herself – for the Greek speaking amongst you (unfortunately I couldn’t find a captioned version of the interview):

For the rest, here’s some of her gorgeous designs that speak volumes in the universal language of fashion…
