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 very feminine tailoring.

The core of the collections are cocktail and tailored dresses with a hint of couture, details to improve fit, flattering shapes and functional details like unexpected pockets.
