BEYOND DRESS CODES: Contemporary Fashion Designers in dialogue with Traditional Greek Costume

Sep 27, 2010 - Oct 27, 2010

A thematic exhibition with sketches of traditional Greek costumes by sketch artist Gisis Papageorgiou. The exhibition also features creations by Greek and foreign fashion designers…

Beyond Dress Codes

The exhibition presents colored drawings of traditional Greek dress and headdresses from all over Greece by sketch artist Gisis Papageorgiou, which constitute the most extensive and possibly most complete inventory of traditional Greek dress to date.

In an attempt to create a “dialogue” between traditional Greek dress and contemporary fashion, creations by Jean-Paul Gaultier and John Galliano will be on show, as well as by other distinguished Greek fashion designers such as Angelos Bratis, Dimitris Dassios, Deux Hommes, Yiorgos Eleftheriades, Ioannis Guia, Sofia Kokosalaki, Thanos Kyriakides, Mastori*Motwary, MiRo, Orsalia Parthenis. Beyond Dress Codes demonstrates that traditional Greek costume should not be regarded as the antiquated contents of museum showcases, but instead a creation of timeless interest that continues to serve as a source of inspiration. 

Curator of the exhibition is fashion historian Lydia Kamitsis.
