Designers:"maryholic handmade bags" by Mary Sofikitu

You know how much I love young designers! They have a fresh approach on fashion and they are full of new ideas and energy to create!

Today, I would like to talk to you about Mary Sofikitu, a young bag designer from Greece. Her brand is called “Maryholic handmade bags”. No, it’s not another bag designer…..but she helps you to be a designer! How? Mary just makes some sample bags. Then you choose the design, the material and the colour you want! Awesome? That means you can design the bag of your dreams!!!
Who is Mary Sofikitu? I can reassure you that she is a girl who loves really what she does!! Everything started since her cousin was a model. Mary met a photographer through her and then she started to make the styling for photo shootings. She may have study library science in Thessaloniki (GR) and worked at her father’s factory but these didn’t stop her from following her dream. She has also studied fashion design, costume design and styling at Veludakis school in Athens (GR) (other graduates are Sofia Kokosalaki, Miro, Vasilis Zoulias, Aslanis, Deux Hommes etc.) and worked as a stylist assistant at Lipstick Magazine, as a window stylist at Glou, as a costume designer at the theatre etc.
Her decision to start her collection grew up inside her for 3.5 years and only last summer she designed her first collection. This means that everything came after a good thought and this is noticeable at her designs. They are completely practical and easy to wear without being boring or indifferent.
Mary loves what she does, but she doesn’t consider it as a job but mostly as a hobby and a nice way to pass her time. This is the right way to feel if you love your job. You are always in the mood to work, because it completes you and makes you feel nice and relaxed.

Her inspiration is everything around her. Even the most common item may be a great idea for a bag design. This is why her bags are always so different and unique. She believes that bags are just like us…everyone has a unique personality!
Mary prefers leather and other fine materials, as she believes that every woman should be able to have a quality bag, without spending lot of money (the clutches cost 80-90E).
You can find “Maryholic handmade bags” @ Christine & Joe boutique (Dousmani 5, Glifada).

In September she opens her own showroom! :D

Bρε θηρίο, τι ωραίο ρεπορτάζ ήταν αυτό?! Ούτε εγώ δεν ήξερα τόσα πράγματα γι'αυτήν κι έχω αποκτήσει ήδη 2 απίστευτα κομμάτια της!!! Είναι πολύ ταλαντούχα κι αυτό που ξεχωρίζει στις τσάντες της είναι τα άψογα υφάσματα σε συνδυασμό με το άψογο ράψιμο! Μπράβο της!
