is Owner and Principal Designer at Eyato London (est. 2012).
The renown British luxury brand Eyato London creates luxurious distinct wearable art. It has twice been listed by 'Make it British', in their top ten Best of British Brands for Footwear and Bags.
Atiti’s twin aims for establishing this brand are to:
- create an aspirational brand for the discerning who desire unique
- position Eyato London as the foremost British made-to-order luxury
Atiti has been privileged to learn from some of Britain's finest craftsmen, artisans and teachers in the industry, namely:
Eelko Moorer initial Prototype Development,
Benjamin John Hall, Tutor: Shoemaking at Prescott & Mackay,
Achilles Khorassandjian Tutor: Pattern Cutting; Shoe Designing; Shoe Making at Ash Shoes,
Anthony Vrahimis, Tutor: Pattern Cutting; Handbag Designing;
Machining; Handbag making and Handbag Framing at AV Design
The added value of learning from these fine craftsmen being in some cases the relationships has extended beyond teaching into supervision, sampling, development and the production for Eyato.
Whilst the process has required total committment and investment of time, money and everything else that I have. It has no doubt been a fantastic life changing journey with some costly mistakes, it has been a thorough and rigorous process of learning, research, development and testing; all of which Atiti believes is worth the toil when one looks at the quality and standard of the products. They are truly befitting of the fabulous clients who now proudly own and wear Eyato London.
Atiti’s designs are in line with her personality. She is a boldly stylish, yet shy introverted extrovert; a lover of life and family. She is gives new meaning to the wearable art in her quirky albeit sophisticated, contemporary luxury creations.
Since we are all a product of our past histories Atiti's creations reflect her dual heritage, with influences of style, colour and vibrance seeping in across time and space.
Her work draws art, music, books and films; on motifs and themes from the 50s to the 80s, and echoes the diverse cultural milieu in which Atiti grew up: the West Midlands in the UK, the south-west, north-east and middle belt plateaus of Nigeria. Places she has lived in and travelled to; which include the cultural melting pot which is Greater London and the surrounding counties, Devon, Dublin, New York, Tuscany, Paris, beautiful villages in South Portugal, to name but a few. In some way they each lend some aspect or element no matter how minute to what Atiti sees, feels, designs and creates for Eyato.
