What A Story


Last night I payed a visit to Tell A Story designers' tradeshow, held at BIOS club, Athens. I was stunned! So much talent going on there. Clothes, jewelry, accessories and many other things, all handmade by young Greek designers.

I was particularly impressed by Euangelia's dresses...

...Theia's corsets, that are made-to-measure for each customer...

...and this girl's boots, which is irrelevant, since they weren't part of the show, but I just had to shoot and post them.

I have to say, one of the reasons I went to the event is that a friend of mine was actually participating. Her name is Constantia and she always manages to pleasantly surprise me with her handmade little treasures. You simply must see for yourself on her flickr.

That white curtain thing you see on the picture above is one of her designs, made with those plastic thingies that handymen use to hold wire.

Well, I'm actually terribly late to write about all this now, as it started on Thursday and finishes today (Alecca Rox did a much better job writing about it back on Tuesday) but if you really want to catch it, hurry up! It's open until 22:00. Otherwise, you can still find many of the original designs in Occhi Concept Store or you can contact the designers personally.
