Fanny Caluori has been passionate about textiles from an early age. Since her parents owned several stores in a large Italian clothing chain, she already developed a marked taste for fashion when she was only small.
After her Bachelors degree in International Relations at the Uni- versity of Geneva, Fanny worked for three years for a Swiss brand of jewellery and watchmaking before completing a Masters in FashIon, Experience & Design Management at Bocconi University in Milan. It was at this time that the idea for Manidou first took root.
Before embarking on this great adventure, Fanny made another detour via Florence, where she worked on the launch of a new range of jewellery at Salvatore Ferragamo.
In 2012, the young designer returned to Switzerland in order to realize her project and invite us into her world, cradled in myths and legends.
Manidou is all about journeys and powerful symbols borrowed from different cultures, but it is also about Fanny’s personal story and her passion. That is why she has taken the greatest care when choosing the materials and weavers with which she works.
