Panos Apergis @ 12th Athens Xclusive Designers Week
Panos Apergis is an insightful and imaginative fashion designer, a stylist with constant presence in the press, in cinema and TV production, and with great experience in the creation and management of big retail shops and fashion ateliers.
His ventures in fashion have started since his childhood, in Patra (where he was born and educated), in the haute couture atelier of his mother Sophia Apergi. A few years later, he attends intensive seminars for fashion design in Italy (1993-1994, Frascati, Rome), and Greece (Athens 1995).
In 1996 he works on clothes remaking and decoration of casual clothes, which are then presented in the Army Factory shop in Myconos. Beyond that point, his presence in the realm of fashion is marked by his collaboration with the fashion designer Nikos Apostolopoulos (2004-2006).
Panos Apergis' first participation in fashion shows took place 15 years ago, in Milan and Bologna, under the thematic title "fashion - textile - colour", and since 2009 he has participated in the 11th, 12th and 13th Athens Fashion Week.
Another important step was his collaboration with new designers in his clothing shop (LUVA-A-DEUS, 7 Charitos Str. Colonaki, Athens), where he also presented his personal collection for 2008-2009.
Since 2006, he has also worked as a costumes designer, in collaboration with Evelyn Sioupi, with whom they still work together, in styling and costumes in the cinema and theatre, for well known directors like M. Reppas, Th. Papathanassiou, K. Giannaris and S. Kraounakis.
For the past three years, Panos Apergis has extended his creativity in the area of jewelry design, creating unique sets, with the use of industrial material like high-pressure pipes or rubber in combination with traditional ways of casting metal.
