THEIA

Theia in Greek (pronounced 'theea', with the 'th' as in 'theme') means 'aunt'. It also means 'divine'. So, when Theodora Provopoulou, a young and very talented Greek fashion designer whose first name literally means 'gift of God', created THEIA, she was obviously playing with her name in English and the double meaning of the word in Greek.

From day 1 I was attracted to THEIA's work. Something about Theodora's resume (she has studied economics, philosophy, fashion design, pattern and sewing!) and her feminine approach to fashion told me this is a designer that we need to keep an eye on. Is it just my idea, or do you see it yourselves that with her work she makes women look more female, really loved, and ultimately, divine?
