Born in Athens and educated in Paris, I grew up connected to the breathtaking
natural and urban environments around me, and sensitive to the elements of
both Greek and French culture.
My childhood was populated with elegant, energetic women who inspired me
with their strength and sophistication.
The architects, writers, painters and designers of my family, perfumed the air
around me with creativity, endowed me with a strong, vibrant and
feminine sensibility as well as a love of handcrafted things.
The Call to Creation
It was with an excited spirit that I left in 2007 to study Shoe Design at the school of Sergio Rossi at San Mauro Pascoli and gain a Master's Degree in Accessories Design at the Istituto Marangoni of Milan.
Since then, I've been lucky enough to work with and learn from some of the most respected designers, such as Bruno Frisoni, Diego Dolcini, Narciso Rodriguez, Madeleine Vionnet and Dolce & Gabbana.
After many years crossing between Paris, Milan, Firenze and working for the most prestigious luxury brands, I decided to take the leap and launch my own brand; DI GAΪA.
