One in particular who caught our attention was Detroit-based Fotoula Lambros. A self-taught designer who focuses on eco-friendly fabrics and avant garde design, we were instantly attracted to Fotoula’s easy yet interesting style not to mention the enthusiasm she exudes for her city of residency: Detroit, Michigan.
