DIMITRIS DASSIOS FASHION SHOW FALL-WINTER 2011-2012
I really enjoyed Dimitris Dassios Fashion Show for tall-winter 2011-2012, last night at the opening of the 13th Athens Fashion Week, in Technopolis. An interesting concept combining Arabesque, the fundamental elements of Islamic art, with ballet dancing and fashion design!
Dimitris Dassios was born in Athens, Greece and has established a career as an actor, a singer and fashion designer. His ethnic inspired designs, are a stylish combination of exquisite materials and authentic fine craftsmanship. His creative jackets and artistic presentation captured the interest of the audience.
I loved Gabriella’s Petzetaki speech about Make a Wish Foundation that reminded us the importance of making sick children’s dreams come true. That girl is soo inspiring and her team rocks!
DAPHNE VALENTE EXHIBITION : LIGHTNESS OF BEING 2
You have to go and see Dapne Valente’s exhibition ‘Lightness of being 2’, in Technopolis, Gazi.
I was really impressed! How her signature pleated scarf can be so inspiring and look amazing in all pictures?! Each photographer created a piece of art with a unique point of view!
Daphne has studied Fashion Design in New York and at St. Martin’s School of Art, in London. Her successful career as a fashion and jewelry designer started in 1985.
Although fashion may seem superficial, in many countries the first industry that takes off is clothing. It can be really important and ultimately lifting people out of poverty. Greeks have always been creative and entrepreneurial… This could work…
