'Beyond Dress Codes' is an exhibition about to open its doors at the Hellenic American Union Galleries. In accordance to the theme, it 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.
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.
Curated by the fashion historian Lydia Kamitsis / Sketches of traditional Greek costumes by sketch artist Gissis Papageorgiou.
