Stefania Frangista

Stefania Frangista, the designer behind the 5-year old brand ‘Pink Sands’, unveils her New Collection, bearing her own name and inspired by her home country, Greece.

Having grown up in Greece, she wished to create a Swimwear brand that would capture the magical sensation that she had always felt especially during summertime, and share that magic with the world.

"It was my way of sharing my love for the what I feel is so unique about the Greek summer: the Greek islands, the Greek sea and sun, the characteristic summer sounds and smells, the unique culture and customs, and the special people one meets along the way."

Stefania wants to offer women swimsuits that will feel wonderful on their bodies. At the beginning of each season she spends as much time designing the style of each swimsuit as she spends attaining the perfect fit, correcting the patterns over and over again.

The fabrics she chooses are of the highest quality and feel heavenly on one's skin.

A significant part of the philosophy of the brand is supporting family businesses and experienced local producers in its home country, Greece. Hence, all of Stefania Frangista’s production is Made in Greece.

Above all, Stefania wants through the brand’s imagery, music and videos, to be able to transport its viewers albeit for a few seconds to the cobbled streets of the beautiful island of Hydra, feel the freshness of the crystal waters off the island of Polyaigos, sense the mysticism of the thousands years of history in Patmos, smell the oregano scented air of a dry field in Kefallonia, almost hear the music sounding from a taverna in the historical area of Plaka and feel the warm welcome of the locals waving at the boat while it enters a small port on the island of Sifnos.

"If by looking at our pictures you find yourself daydreaming of being right there and can’t wait to find yourself in Greece, then we have succeeded, we have worked the Greek Summer magic on you."

Zeus+Dione

Two friends, a marketeer and a financier came together to create a New Greek brand that will combine traditional craftsmanship with modern design elements. Dimitra and Mareva who share the same attributes, aesthetics and values, decided to join forces and focus on creating a brand that will reflect their taste and personality.

Both established in their fields, within and beyond Greek borders, they have turned their attention on a new segment of the fashion industry which they feel has not been properly explored: to transform the Greek style and rich culture to an updated form of design.

Zeus+Dione is a brand that features handmade, high quality products based on refined craftsmanship. In collaboration with different entities such as manufacturers, small workshops, artists and designers from all over Greece, Zeus+Dione revives the Hellenic heritage in a contemporary way.

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She had no childhood: in every image and each reference she is born as an adult, nubile, and infinitely desirable. Her festival, Aphrodisia, was celebrated across Greece. Aphrodite was associated with, and often depicted with, the sea, dolphins, doves, swans, pomegranates, sceptres, apples, myrtle, rose trees, lime trees, clams, scallop shells, and pearls. She had many lovers, both gods and men.. Aphrodite possessed a magic girdle which had the power of inspiring love and desire for those who wore it. According to a greek myth Aphrodite’s parents were Zeus+Dione.

Zeus+Dione is a company based on a myth and creating one at the same time.

Ilias Markolefas

Ilias Markolefas is a designer that holds a diploma degree in Architecture, a master degree in Interior Design and studies in Fashion Design. His philosophy in design is that everything has to answer human needs and not to be another waist product in our consuming world. Borders between different fields of design don’t exist for him; everything seems to be a composition of knowledge from different fields. He participated in many design events around the world such as Milan design week(2013), 5th Landscape Biennale of  Barcelona(2008) etc.

This project aims to rethink a symbol of men’s fashion from the past in order to make it more suitable to our democratic world . Why a woman needs to be dressed in a manly way in order to wear a bow tie?  For all these reasons, I decided to laser cut bow ties in plywood of 3mm. This new technique allows me to create detailed patterns that could never have happened in the past by hand. I perceive my bow ties as a canvas on which I can express my philosophical, political, etc ideas. The use of velcro instead of the traditional way to buckle the bow tie’s collar relaxes people and makes them to explore the limits of this product. As a result it  is easier to check if it fits on your hand, around your neck without a shirt, or even to your pets neck.
