Born in Southern Africa to Greek Cypriot parents, Angelo had the unique opportunity to live and experience Southern Africa as well as the Mediterranean. After discovering his passion for design as a teenager, he studied Fashion in Johannesburg, and London. Angelo opened his Atelier in Manhattans eclectic East Village in 2000, with little other than his now-legendary store-front window displays as marketing.
Angelo finds inspiration in everything from the vibrant landscape of his African roots to the boundless energy of New York. His signature line of bias cuts, draped wrap details and intricate pleating are completely hand crafted.
