Emmanuela Lykou was born in Athens. She studied Economics in Geneva. She always had a passion for fashion. Today, she signs her own line of women and childrens beachwear. Her trips around the world inspire her into producing unique designs for each collection. Her own personal experience has taught her that finding the perfect fit bikini can be difficult for a woman. So, she decided to create her own line, launching her first collection in 2006 under the brand name "Emmanuela" .
