Sofia Dourvari

Sofia launched Sofia Dourvari in July 2012, a high-end, luxury range of women's clothing inspired by the designer's Greek roots.

All items are bespoke and Sofia Dourvari offers an alterations service on all garments, making them truly customized and unique to the wearer.

The designer behind the luxury ladies wear brand is Sofia Dourvari, age 30, originally from Athens, Greece. The up and coming designer has lived and worked in Manchester for ten years and she is looking to break into the vibrant UK fashion community. Sofia studied Fashion Design at Salford University then went on to complete a Masters in Textiles Technology at the University of Manchester. During her studies, she won the Best Designer Award in the International Student Festival (2007).

Sofia has many signature elements to her designs, fishtails, ruffles and gathers, elegant flowing dresses, low scoops. Black will be a key theme for the show, with graceful, feminine dresses featuring stand-out details. Many of these will feature silver and gold highlights.

Sofia says: "Fashion and design have always been my passions and since graduating I have worked for many fashion houses, both in the UK and abroad. My philosophy is to create elegant feminine designs that are creative, unusual and suitable for a wide range of occasions, from parties, galas and events, to weddings and formal dinners and even for the office. I like to create timeless designs suitable for ladies of any age, in both classic, practical shapes, in either pencil or skater-style, as well as dramatic floor-length gowns".
