STYΛΙΑΝΟS @ 12th Athens Xclusive Designers Week
STYΛΙΑΝΟS is a new, promising haute couturier specialized in bridal and evening wear. His involvement with fashion design happened quite naturally for him, since he comes from a family of couturiers.
He studied business economics, getting a prize for best academic achievement in 2003. In 2005 he finished his studies in PANSIK where he presented three personal collections in the school's fashion shows and right after that he attended Milan's legendary Instituto Marangoni where he was taught by professionals of Gucci, Cavalli, Sergio Rossi etc. He graduated from his Master's degree with "cum laude" distinction. For one year he worked in Milan as a freelance designer.
Today, STYΛΙΑΝΟS is the creative director of KONSTANTINOS fashion house, producing hundreds of handmade dresses, building a relationship of trust and respect with his clients. At the same time he gives free fashion lectures to high-school students in his atelier, while occasionally he contributes as a stylist to local fashion magazines.
We met STYΛIANOS after his fall/winter 2012 strong debut, with his intriguing collection ANTITHESIS, raising the bar high. For the spring/summer 2013 season the designer inspired by the award-winning documentary SAYOME introduces us to his own neonostalgic style by bringing together Japanese and Mediterranean elements. The designer remains faithful to his favorite antithetic patterns through which we got to know him. Floral prints, transparencies and laces are combined with leather details and handmade leather belts on elegant yet sexy silhouettes taken from the 50's. High quality material make each piece with precision on the finishing.
STYΛΙΑΝΟS' collections are available exclusively in Crete and Thessaloniki
