more on Athens Fashion Week

And some unofficial stuff...(don't quote me on this one):
ART & FASHION cultural program
Athens Fashion Week is enriched with new ideas and new programs, with the purpose of appealing to a bigger and broader audience and the aspiration of it becoming a grand celebration throughout the city. It wants to introduce fashion to all ages, especially the young, focusing on the significance of fashion and how it influences and shapes our daily life.
Particular emphasis is given to the presentation of cultural facts from all aspects of art (musical, figurative, dance, cinema, design, new forms of expression, etc.) and parallel events (congresses, competitions, reports, commercial meetings, etc.) that are associated with the fashion world; for example, the creation of an International Fashion & Art Festival that will highlight the wider social dimension of fashion.

The Cultural Program has been organized by the following well known greek artistsof contemporary art: Konstantinos Rigos (choreographer), Alexandros Psychoylis (Artist), Yiorgos Tzirtzilakis (Architect), Dimitris Arvanitis (Graphic Designer), Nadja Argyropoulou (CURATOR), Andonis Kioukas (Film Director).
