This brand is familiar...

...I thought and moved closer. "Celia Kritharioti - Greece". Celia may not have been there in person -she is a mother of four now if I'm not mistaken- but her new pret-a-porter line 5226 was on display, ready for ss '10.



This line is quite fresh, now running its second year. However Celia and her brother and associate Nikos decided it was time to show it to the world and there it was, in Paris. I was informed it hit it off particularly well with Spanish and Arab buyers. I was also given Kritharioti's profile which read she is "an owner and innovator of an emblematic and esteemed Greek fashion salon established in 1906(...)", House Tsouhlou that is, which brought in mind this* old sweet story of fashion success. (*sorry, it's all Greek! try this)

"5226" stands for Celia & Nikos Krithariotis father's date of birth. Touching tribute.

Last but not least, Celia Kritharioti was recently appointed to design Olympic Airlines' new uniforms, expected to look like this:

@meraldia actually there was an online competition a few months ago, finalists being Kritharioti, a design school and a design team. The public voted for her in the end. True, this story didn't circulate as loud as u'd expect, no idea why.
