Eliana Batsakis

Eliana Batsakis is a recent graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Often told she “laughs at everything,” Eliana brings joy and humor into each of her collections. Through voluminous and colorful garments, Eliana hopes to create other realms in which her viewer can enter and exit with ease. Her work is characterized by the use of imaginative narratives, manipulated textures, bright color palettes, and bold silhouettes, inspired by real stories. Eliana does not design for one particular body. Instead, she enjoys thinking of garments themselves as “bodies” with the ability to transport the wearer to other realms of existing - using fashion as a catalyst to activate other worlds through wearing.
