Architecting Out of the Box: An Exciting Mixture of Architecture and Fashion
Written by Maria Perrou - Monday, 11 May 2015



If there is no path available to walk on, we create our own. This is what Vicky Lavranou, an architect from Greece, decided to do. When all her life was filled with mixtures of tough building materials such as cement, wire, metal and so forth, she faced a shiny moment or a “moment of truth,” as we sometimes call it. She decided to participate in a contest hosted by HERMES and had the opportunity to experiment with the design of handbags. From that moment onwards, a new brand was on the way. Vicky began recycling her architectural drawings to patterns and covers for new fashion design items. ‘RAinpatterns' had just been born. Combining love for usability, fashion, and design, she began creating handbags and other accessory items infusing all her creativity, vision and beliefs.
