A modern success story, Caramel was created by Eva Karayiannis, a former lawyer in 1999, a designer with a strong vision and immense passion.

Asides from its own stores, Caramel is a brand which is also sold through 100 independent retailers. The burgeoning label now also includes a recently launched and well received womenswear range and a homewares collection. Read less
