Following her father’s direction, FOTINI put aside her childhood passion for design and embarked on a career in finance and marketing. However, some passions are too hard to ignore, prompting Fotini to leave behind the world of business and follow her design dream.
Spending 3 years in Italy studying the construction of corsetry and the artistry of the masters of the old world ateliers, FOTINI uses the skills that she learned to create her signature collection. The chic and sensuous line emphasizes beautiful construction and fit with special touches of embellishment, bringing old world craftsmanship together with a modern sensibility.
For Spring 2013, FOTINI was inspired by France: the French countryside & 18th Century painters and wisteria. The inspiration led to a collection that is light, elegant and romantic with a color palette of mostly pastels and white.
FOTINI's Spring 2013 Collection showcases her skills as an artisan as well as a designer for a collection that is truly beautiful!
