Born in Athens, Greece into a family of artists, Helena's interest in fashion started at an early age. Her talent was easily discernible through her drawings and designs and her teachers had singled her out for her creativity. After high school, she studied fashion design and art history. As one of the most talented students, she was sent to Los Angeles for further studies. Upon her return to Athens, she was hired as a designer for a large clothing manufacturer. In 2000, Helena opened her own atelier featuring unique evening and wedding gowns. After taking part in many fashion shows, both haute couture and ready to wear, her creations were soon the talk of the town. Helena's collections are noted for their originality and femininity. Using sensuous fabrics such as silk, satin and chiffon, she also loves to accent them with French lace and Swarovski crystals. Is it any wonder that women say they feel glorious in her gowns?
