From its origins in 2012, F I O R A V A N T I has been based on function and modernity, seen in the designs by Mia Fioravanti. The company targets the market by offering clothing made with integrity and with qualities that reflect something slow and handmade. Using outstanding manufacturing techniques, the company is growing in a small workshop in Seattle, Washington. The brand F I O R A V A N T I is becoming synonymous with interesting, functional, elegant design for women who value timeless sophistication, new applications of old techniques and designs that work with our modern world.
Mia comes from a family with a history in the textile business which began in the 1860's on the banks of the Illinois River. John Grieves and Sons, a wool factory, remained alive for 100 years when its doors finally closed in 1968. This was the foundation from which everything else has come. The family moved west in the 70's to embark on yet another adventure in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Making clothing began early in her life, age eight, and has been the common 'thread' throughout. Designing clothing, photography, and all things artistic have been the driving force behind what F I O R A V A N T I is all about.
Fast forward to today, Mia and her two daughters, Julia and Wysdom, have teamed up to bring something unique to the mix.
