Eleni, born in Amfia, Kalamata, Greece, was educated at the Athens School of Fashion and Design where she was nominated for numerous awards for academic achievement as well as haute couture. As a student, she was chosen to assist in the design and creation of a complete wardrobe for Queen Anna Maria of Greece - one of the highest awards afforded at the Academy. Upon completion of her studies, Eleni accompanied her parents to the United States where she continued her career in the fashion industry.
In 1984 she was selected a “Rising Young Star Designer” and invited by the Fashion Group of Boston to show five of her exclusive creations before the most prestigious designers of the United States and Europe.
Eleni’s passion for fashion and art has led her into teaching young people at Girls Inc., Greater Lowell Technical High School, MCC Fashion Design Camp, Fun Fashion Project Skopolos, Greece, the Lowell Middlesex Charter School Academy, Bay State College in Boston and Lasell College in Newton. She has actively contributed to local theater costume and stage design. Eleni has exhibited her work at the Whistler House Museum of Art, the Brush Art Gallery, Ayer Lofts and Arts League of Lowell.
