Today at Castello dei Visconti there is a disturbing presence: the treacherous Medusa, originally a beautiful woman who fell victim to a curse.

About

"Virtue lies in the middle. Buddha."

"Virtue lies in the middle. Buddha." Zodiac balance sign, I seek a balance between online and offline. I grew up to the age of majority in an age without internet, my mom sewed clothes for the family to make economy, and created carnival costumes to help me realize my fantasies. Playing in the family band with my father and spending the summer holidays in Greece, I chose for my brand Elea, a mermaid from the Greek mythology of the Odyssey, where it was said that the mermaids were beautiful creatures playing harp or flute that enchanted with their song.

Growing up I started to sew and embroider small accessories alone that I could not find in the store. Later I started making clothes for dolls. Today I try to create something new with the technique of re-fashion and Quilt as it was done in the fifties.
The name Elea is an ancient polis of Magna Grecia: my siren Elea one evening saw for the first time a fashion show on the beach and fell in love with that world, clothes and accessories! From that moment she wished so much to be able to wear them and she started going to earth, becoming a human but she had to be careful not to be discovered and the magic lasted only for a few hours!

In an age of throwaway culture it is not easy to find elements of chic, quality and long-lasting outfits such as my grandmother's leather bag, suitable both for work and for social life. Thus, Elea creates an original and personalized look!

Finding the right compromise between elegance and practicality is always a challenge for us women who must divide us between work, family and free time. Like the siren Elea who is able to transform into a human woman and then return to the marine kingdom by immersing herself in the sea.

Once I thought I had found the perfect bag, elegant blue, capacious, matching the wide-brimmed hat, for seaside holidays: where to put the camera and my backpack on the beach. What a disappointment when only two days later the handle has come off!

Then discovering the technique of Quilt and Free Motion and patchwork of the ancient American communities, I learned to use my sewing machine in a new way, embroidering on the machine stuff, breaking the patterns, thus realizing the clothes and accessories of my dreams mixing together remnants of cloth.

Working for fashion brands such as: John Galliano, Versace, Dior, Parah, La Perla, Paul & Shark, Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana and Ermenegildo Zegna, I learned from expert seams old and new sewing techniques, like my mermaid Elea who many little friends of the sea and her mermaids friends who help her in her business!

I thus gave a new direction to my profession as a fashion designer, this led me to study a new line of products available online, customizable. In my shop https://eleamoda.etsy.com it's like going to an old-fashioned dressmaker.
How does it end? Will Elea have to make a choice, will she return as a princess of the seven seas or will she decide to remain forever a human?
