Sophia Kokosalaki is renowned for her sophisticated collections which combine the heritage of her Grecian roots and the steely urban energy of London, her adopted city.
It was whilst studying at London’s Central Saint Martins that she first turned to the familiar iconography of her Greek roots. She began to drape and fold fabric around the body, creating fluid silhouettes and plisse detailing in homage to Greek architecture and a traditional artisan approach.
In recognition of her unfaltering ability to combine tradition with modernity she was appointed Head Costumer Designer for the Opening Ceremony of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games; representing her countries cultural heritage on the world’s largest international stage.
Sophia’s also produces timeless and sophisticated bridal, contemporary and red carpet collections. Clients include Tilda Swinton, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, Keira Knightley, Rachel Weiz, Anne Hathaway.
