Born in South Africa, raised in Greece, Uránya studied for her business degree in the UK and Spain, and worked for several luxury fashion brands in London before deciding to escape to the Mediterranean sun.
A lover of flowing, feminine dresses, she started playing with fine materials and cuts in search of the perfect dress that could be worn effortlessly all day long.
With silk her favourite fabric, understated sophistication her style, and simplicity her truth, she created her first signature designs. A collection of flowing, silk dresses started unfolding, in perfect harmony with the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape and the grace of the female silhouette.
On a warm July afternoon on the island of Hydra, Uránya was wearing one of her silk dresses while viewing a beautiful sunset. She was feeling free.
It was then that the Uránya Grace brand was born.
