Fotini AW12 MBFW

This financier daughter of a Greek mother and Egyptian father was born in Athens and raised in Canada…ultimately giving up finances for fashion. 
Inspiration for Fotini’s eponymous collection, presented Tuesday at MBFW, drew on her own exotic heritage and the mystery behind Cleopatra, Helen of Troy and Queen Nefertiti. Crafted in America, the goddess gowns meld her love of corsetry, luxe Italian fabrics, French laces and confident colors. 
“I understand the business angle of the industry all too well b/c of my financial background…but I am inspired by a woman’s mystery. You can be sexy… but it shouldn’t be overt…” (Quote courtesy of TJG’s Jeanne Kelly.)
