From an early age, she apprenticed in haute-couture at the best salons of the time. There, a whole new world opened up to her. She becomes familiar with the designs of giants in the fashion world, such as Dior, Lanvin, Chanel, Courrèges, and Givenchy. The new insight paired with her talent, allowed Amalia Karageorgou to shine especially regarding evening gowns, requiring the highest degree of skill. Her personal work could be seen on the jet-set of the era. More specifically, it was her touch that guaranteed the elegant and technically difficult details on the attire of the royal family, the prime minister’s wife (even at the meeting with the Pope), Melina Merkouri, and other public figures.
Amalia Karageorgou, born on August 22, 1945, in a small town of Greece, right after the war, she didn’t have an easy childhood. Despite the fact she was forced to abandon formal education at the age of 14 in order to work, the following years, having dealt with the necessities of living, she starts reading extensively and begins to demonstrate a passion for culture, refined taste and manners. She travels often to France, Italy, and Spain. From all the arts, painting is the one she enjoys the most, but she also relishes classical music, ballet, and opera. Her favorite fashion designer of all time is Christian Dior.
Having as philosophy of life the motto: “Things must be done in their proper time, not before,” today the brand Amalia Karageorgou is established by her daughter and one of a kind brooches are produced of the finest silk, lace, velvet, sequins and rhinestones.
