With a Mediterranean vibe in her blood, Jori accepts that style plays an important part in her life. She recalls her childhood memories sketching fashion outfits and shoes in secret during the long summer afternoons, while her grandma believed little Jori was having a nap. Growing up and being unconsciously dragged towards the creative process she used to spend hours watching fashion channel and imagining herself being the creator of those catwalks outfits. The designer’s background in architecture has been invaluable in executing her vision and constructing new shapes displaying a perfect balance between proportion, shape, volume and colour. By embodying modern femininity, Jori reflects her distinct personal style on each shoe creation. The major reference point and inspiration derive from the love for art, architecture, nature and feminine personality.
