An invitation for a Fashion Jewelry Exhibition opening I was happy to accept. Undeniably, a colorful spring event organized by Daphne Valente and curated by Maria Xanthakos! Four famous Greek Fashion Jewelry designers showed their work at the I.E.T.T. Foundation of Fine Arts! The Artistic, Colorful and Fresh new collections of Daphne, Maria Mastori, Katerina Psoma and Dimitris Dassios, actually, came out of a closet. All designer exhibited their work inside the selves and drawers of amazing ethnic cupboards. It was so much fun! We were mostly women going through each designers closets trying to find our special spring jewel.
I found mine at Dapne Valente’s collection, as usual! Damn, this girl’s designs have style! An amazing pair of long earrings that she made extra long for me…. and yes I also got the scarf that has been the source of inspiration not only for Greek Fashion Photographers but also of important Greek artists as we saw in the exhibition “ Lightness of being”.
I really loved the work of Maria Mastori ! Truly in the concept of a fashion trend I adore this season, The New Age Tribal ( my article about it is coming soon ) ! Such an elegant person with strong personal style. Her dress was great but I forgot to ask her where she got it…:(
I show his fashion show just 2 weeks at Athens Fashion Week and it was great! There were some Fashion Jewelry Designs in the same adorable, Arabesque concept. I almost forgot, he has truly original leather bags great for Summer Island hoping! There is something about his work that merges east and west with a twist.
Nice designs in the Katerina Psoma trademark style. With classic summer combinations like coral and turquoise her collections are …easy to wear.
Maria Xanthakos created a worm atmosphere, as she always does, that was so much fun. We had drinks, we talked, we laughed, we explored the creativity of Greek artistic jewelry designs and we bought. Exactly they way Daphne and Maria had planed! 🙂
The exhibition ‘Out of the closet’ ends April,30.
I.E.T.T. : Kassavetti 18, Kifisia, Athens, Greece
