Born in 1978, Angelos Bratis grows up in his seamstress mother’s atelier before enrolling at the Veloudakis Fashion School in Athens and continues his studies later in Amsterdam. As the first Greek graduate he gains a master degree at artEZ Institute of the Arts, formerly known as the Arnhem Fashion Institute.
Paris and Rome become further destinations on his way, where he collects experiences as an assistant to a variety of Couture Houses until his way takes him back to Greece for a first time in 2005 – to establish his own brand. Five years later he returns to Italy as a consultant designer for brands such as Vionnet and Roberto Cavalli – while he continues to present his own collections to an international audience. In 2011, he wins the “Who Is On Next?“ competition, founded by Franca Sozzani from Vogue Italia, designer Silvia Venturini Fendi and Alta Roma. In 2014, he is chosen to present his SS15 Collection “Moralis“ in the Teatro Armani, the fashion maestro Giorgio Armani’s Milanese headquarters, designed by Japanese star architect Tadao Ando.
Angelos Bratis’ fluid silhouettes and signature drapes set a new mood of elegant ease. His collections have among others graced catwalks in Milan, Paris, Amsterdam, Athens, Beijing and New York and have garnered the attention of the international press.
