Fanm Mon is a luxury womenswear brand that launched in 2013. With headquarters in US, Turkey and Ukraine, the label takes a bold approach to embroidery, offering feminine styles and vibrant color combinations.
Designed in our private atelier in Ukraine, each piece is meticulously crafted for exceptional quality. Our in-house artisans pay special attention to detail and have mastered both traditional and proprietary hand embroidery techniques.
We are quickly becoming known worldwide for taking traditional styles and turning them into wearable, modern art forms for women that embrace their own individual style and authenticity.
More than just a team, Sophia and Kerem are husband and wife life partners. Their styles and strengths compliment each other and together, they make the business thrive.
Sophia Demirtas, Co-Founder and Designer
With a desire to wear something original, Sophia Demirtas began her journey creating what she could not find. Soon after, friends gravitated to her designs and began buying her jewelry. Having grown up in NYC, Sophia always had her very own bold and unique sense of style. Friends encouraged her to pursue the fashion industry, but she felt it was not her calling, not then.
It was not until she relocated her family to Turkey and began to make jewelry again that she was able to fully embrace her creativity. Shortly after, she began selling at Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Nomads Yards and throughout Turkey.
She realized that something bigger was in her future and transitioned to womenswear. Sophia began sketching and sewing, and with a growing demand from friends and others, she decided to open an atelier in Kiev. With a masters degree in public affairs and administration (MPA) from Metropolitan, College of New York and years of working in social work, this endeavor is the New York native and Haitian designer’s latest adventure.
