*Iosis is a greek equivalent of latin word Rubedo. Rubedo means “redness” that was adopted by alchemists to define the fourth and final major stage in their magnum opus. Both gold and the philosopher’s stone were associated with the color red, as rubedo signalled alchemical success, and the end of the great work. That is why in collection we can see bright green georgette, heavy dark red italian satin, ethereal deep green pleated chiffon with gold romantic roses all over. Iosis collection has original, romantic and mysterious character.
