A delightful mash up of the words philosophy and fée – fairy in French, Philosofée was established in 2016 in New York by Brazilian designer Glaucia Stanganelli. With an emphasis on the accentuated waistline and superb attention to detail, Philosofée is dedicated to this feminine yet modern woman, effortless chic with a playful attitude. The core of the collections are cocktail and tailored dresses with a hint of couture, details to improve fit, very feminine flattering shapes and functional details like unexpected pockets.
A former ballerina, Brazilian designer Glaucia Stanganelli’s journey spans three continents, from Sao Paulo, Brazil to London and now New York. A graduate of both Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Sao Paulo and London College of Fashion, Glaucia has been in the industry for over 16 years, she started her career at Brazilian designer Maruzia Fernandez’s couture atelier honing couture techniques followed by stints at Zandra Rhodes and Topshop before founding Philosofée.
