What She Does: Angela Giannopoulos is the president and founder of SC3 Group, a design and production firm that she started in 2002. She lists such influential clients as Estée Lauder and Tishman Speyer. This year she has taken on a number of high profile events: a party to celebrate Blondie’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Watermill Center’s always artful summer benefit (“working with Robert Wilson was a big feather in my cap,” she says of the center’s creator), and two launches for the new Donna Karan Gold fragrance. This fall Giannopoulos has also debuted a subsidiary business: Studio 3, which rents custom-built furniture and accessories.
Her Background: After studying business, Giannopoulos decided “it just wasn’t my bag” and applied for a summer job at Barneys New York. That turned into a six-year stint at the department store, where she worked with Simon Doonan as part of a team that created windows and store displays, and helped launch the Madison Avenue store as well as locations in Beverly Hills and Chicago. (“To this day, when I see Simon I say, ‘It’s because of you that I’m where I am today.’ And it’s true.”) After Barneys she worked briefly for her father’s firm, Irene’s Florals, before starting SC3 Group.

Her Style: “I don’t like when someone tries to manipulate something that is pure and make it something else. I focus on the purity of the idea, not getting too kitschy, not getting too campy—just focusing on where the idea originated. I guess that’s why my events are so clean and why there aren’t a lot of bells and whistles."
