Traces & Influences of Greek Local Dress in Contemporary Fashion and Costume Design.
Dr Sofia Pantouvaki presents a selection of designs from the fields of fashion and theatrical costume by Greek, Cypriot and international couturiers and costume designers. The variety of Greek local dress and its distinctive features have inspired contemporary creative production in the field of design both in present-day fashion and in performance costume. Within a new aesthetic, social and cultural framework modern creators interpret elements of Greek popular culture moving on from the ‘folklore’ approach, and transform the forms and meanings of the past into expressive media for the present.
