Founded by Theresa Ebagua, Chelsea Paris is named in honour of her two daughters. Driven by her love affair with timeless design and craftsmanship, Theresa trained in Italy; first at Ars Sutoria in Milan and later on as an apprentice with artisan shoemakers in the region. Woven into her designs are Theresa's long-standing loves and fascinations; the Art Deco movement, the sights, colours and artifacts of her native Africa, and historical French fashion. Theresa designs for free spirited women – women with a sense of individuality and identity, who love travel, culture and fearlessly live life with style.
