Live in Athens the capital of Greece, a modern, safe and lively European city. Its history goes back to 3,200 B.C. Athens had been the Centre of Knowledge, Philosophy and Arts (music, dance, sculpture, ancient drama, architecture, poetry) and the birthplace of Democracy. It is the city where Socrates, Plato, Phidias, Terpander, Pericles and Goddess Athena have lived. The Parthenon, one of the most famous architectural wonders of the world sticks out in the center of the city on the Acropolis rock.
Love the Art of Fashion Design in relation to the Traditional Local Costumes of Greece. The art of sewing of the local Greek costumes goes back to Ancient Greece, but evolves and takes its contemporary form during the Byzantine age. The female costumes, mostly, typify (depending on the “ornaments” which adorned each and every costume) the marital status and the age of each woman. These costumes were notably conservative and covered the whole body. There was also a large local variety. In every costume one could see fancy color schemes and the usage of many fabrics. The costume’s manufacture was based on tradition and conservatism and is radically different from fashion, which is particularly based on the mood for change.
