WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DESYLLAS
The creative journey starts with artistic inspiration that is translated to hand-drawn sketches, with the finer details layered until the artist’s design is finally revealed.
Hand-crafted in Italy by notable artisans using only the finest vegan Italian materials, quality, luxury, and fantasy come together in the most beautiful and evocative symphony.
From concept to creation these designs become a part of your journey and will take you to greater heights. Designed for the muse within, the feminine divine, the daring, and for those who dream.
The name behind the brand is Helena Pantahos, a South Australian shoe designer with a life-long obsession for shoes.
Helena’s passion led her to studying Creative Textiles at Marden Senior College and Custom Made Footwear at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), where she learnt the art of making shoes by hand.
In February 2018, Helena travelled to Milan to attend both MICAM and Lineapelle, the leading shoe and textile expos in Europe, and now her designs are hand-made in Italy by artisans who have brought her vision to life with their attention to detail and expertise.
Drawing inspiration from art, nature and beauty, the designer creates shoes that are objects of desire for those who express through style.
Not only is Helena’s passion for design embedded into Desyllas, but also her personal ethos that no one should have to suffer for one’s vision, meaning that she works only with ethical factories and uses vegan materials.
Helena envisions a world of inspiration, expression, kindness and possibilities, and that is the #WorldOfDesyllas.
