MONOCHROME.style is the online destination dedicated to a monochromatic sensibility and slow-fashion lifestyle. Edited by Mariella Agapiou.
Having weaved a career that started in PR and social, and led to journalism before turning to the dark side [brand side], Mariella thrives in positions made up of many different roles. On any given day you will find her working on concept creation, social strategy, art curation, talent commissioning and shoot production, or art direction and brand identity. Which is why the millennial-favourite freelance life suits her very well. But alas, not long after heading out on her on, she launched MONOCHROME.agency.
With both a creative and analytic mind, Mariella is able to execute all kinds of projects. And as a third-culture kid – a Greek Cypriot girl, born and raised in South London – she has an interest in all forms of art and culture, especially fashion and feminism, and the way they are communicated in innovative ways the world over. This ensures that the MONOCHROME.agency creates work that pushes boundaries and doesn’t colour within the lines.
Mariella has previously held positions at independent publications such as TWIN magazine, where she was online editor, and has been published in the likes of ELLE UK, Canvas8, The Daily Telegraph, The Spaces Magazine, Grazia Middle East and the Mail Online, while also working at and creating content for INDUSTRIE, LN-CC, Finery, Browns London and MATCHESFASHION.COM while in London, and Ounass, Niili, Glow Getters, Florence Owens, and ATTUALE in Dubai.
Having worked in the industry for nearly ten years, she now focuses her energy on culturally conscious conversations, whether that’s consulting and strategising for her clients, or writing about positive escapism, slow fashion, or mindfulness.
MONOCHROME.style sees her collaborate with stylists, photographers, brands, and those who she believe to be muses, to create content that sets out to intrigue and inspire.

PS. She is currently based between Dubai + London, spreading the word on slow fashion and minimalism throughout the Middle East. Wish her luck: those guys are maximalist AF.
