Urania Gazelli is the creative name chosen by the Greek designer Urania Giourmetaki for her bags label. The name was inspired by her much beloved late grandmother. With studies in industrial design and a bachelor from Middlesex University of London she has deep understanding of precise, high quality workmanship and aesthetics which is evident in each bag. After years of working in her father’s side with plexiglass, Urania wanted to leave her own mark in their family business and therefore in industrial and fashion industry worldwide, having him always as role model and making use of the fact "Savoir -Faire ". Her plexiglass handmade clutch bags are made in her homeland Greece, at the family business "Ranol" in Athens where they have a fully equipped factory with a large variety of machines and are specialized for over 25 years in interior design and especially in the field of special constructions using and combining plexiglass, inox and brass. The brand was founded in the spring of 2010 when they started experimenting with shapes, colors and techniques. Inspired by feminine sense of practicality, her design philosophy meets futurism with classicism. After two years of research in the field of accessories and bags, Urania is applying to the most popular accessories trade shows in Paris for showing her debut collection "Urania Gazelli AW 2012" where she is accepted at Premiere Classe Paris for March 2012. Since then she continues presenting her collections in high end accessories trade shows at Premiere Classe Jardin des Tuileries. In September 2013 Vogue Italia has chosen URANIA GAZELLI as one of the 10 Vogue Talents and presented SS’14 at Palazzo Morando during Milan Fashion Week. Her plexiglass handcrafted clutch bags are made using fine materials and finished with the brand’s signature in brass gold plated sign inside the bag. While her approach is playful and modern, it is always grounded in careful combinations and techniques, giving each piece the feeling of unique, luxury and elegant. Each bag is handmade with love by Urania building each collection with a mix of colors, shapes and interesting techniques.
