I personally never seized to believe in Greek Fashion.Not because I’m of Greek origin but,lets say, from a deep feeling that that is worth WILL be widely recognized and there it is,thanks to the valuable effort of the people from the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation.And that’s how the fabulous exhibition ”SIX plus THREE DESIGNERS took shape.Proudly exhibiting garments from greek designers ranging from Jean Dessès, Yannis Evangelides, James Galanos, Dimis Kritsas, George Stavropoulos, and Yannis Tseklenis along with pieces from the three international ones’, Mary Katrantzou (read:excellent prints),Marios Schwab (perhaps my favorite pattern cutting of all) and,of course, Sophia Kokosalaki with her excellent Grecian-inspired pieces. Ioanna Papantoniou, President of the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation (who also delivered the opening speech,and her collaborators did their bet to promote Greek culture and art in times that such an endeavor is essential.Congratulations to all.
