Last week (March 14 – March 18) Athens hosted the fifth annual Hellenic Fashion Week, held in the famous and beautiful Zappeion Hall in the midst of the National Gardens.
Over the course of the four days, the fashions of 42 different designers were presented in a sophisticated yet playful manner reminiscent of Paris or Milan. Popular Belgian DJ Nicolas Dalés, who has been burning up turntables in Greece for over a decade now, was on hand, providing a high-energy soundtrack to catwalk shenanigans.
As Athens designers attain greater recognition, we predict that more and more editors and fashionistas will flock to the well-organized catwalks of Athens to check out the local fashion crop. In the meantime, highly-respected and well-known Greek design houses like Makis Tselios and Deux Hommes will continue to wow those already ahead of the curve.
All that aside, it was a true fashion party weekend. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Hellenic Fashion Week.
