Born in 2005, BIKO draws inspiration from global treasures and found curiosities, translating such ideas into wearable, contemporary silhouettes. BIKO marries vintage inspiration with sleek mixed metals, hand-cast pendants and natural stones to create high-quality, versatile pieces that tell a story. Born & raised in Toronto, Corrine Anestopoulos is inspired by contemporary design & exotic heirlooms from around the world. Behind Biko for thirteen years, Corrine has become an inspirational entrepreneur, mentor & colleague to many creative businesses in North America.
