Prova - 2010
PROVA: Jewelry designer Irini Arakas founded PROVA in May 2005 while working as a fashion writer at American Vogue. Following rave reviews from the retail industry for her initial collections, Arakas left Vogue to focus her energy on building the PROVA label. PROVA, which means “to try” in Greek, is a collection of hand-made jewelry and scarves created in New York City’s garment district. Arakas feels that her designs are unique because of the way she brings together disparate elements in surprising and creative ways.
