A showroom on the third floor of a building resembling an embassy accessible only by appointment, a designer's hidden studio on the basement, a clothing shop on a backstreet that even locals hardly know and a collection of modern souvenirs from Athens in a 100 meters long uphill pedestrianized street in Plaka area… Meet some of the best Greek Designers in person, discover the crème de la crème of clothing pieces and design items created by greek modern designers and get in touch with the creative scene that started to flourish about 4 years ago in the city. Of course, by participating in this walk you will also have the opportunity to shop whatever you like while wandering through Athens city center. This experience is highly recommended also to Greeks, even Athenians, as they will have the opportunity to discover an aspect of their city they probably don’t know about.
I 've been working as journalist (mainly as an interview editor of fashion designers based in Athens) for almost 6 years and I also have been writing articles and interviews about creatives in general (illustrators, fashion, interior designers etc). For about 3 years I work also as a Marketing Manager for Greek Clothing Brands. My first job was writing on a website called “My Secret Athens” about new or hidden places in Athens and seeking every new aspect of this city, especially when it comes to fashion, consists still my passion.
We will visit the showroom a of a clothing brand with an elegant Greek aesthetic, a store with handmade ballet flats with 100 years old history & a new one with romantic sense & silky textures, a creative hub of designers who make textiles&homeware, an“atelier in a shop”showcasing unique designs, another with surmeasure pieces, a womenswear shop with fresh design,a workspace of handcrafted jewelry, hats fashion,modern souvenirs by local artists..
