Three greek designers joined forces for a tribute to one of Greece well known designers, Yiannis Tseklenis.
Inspired by the 70's drawings of Yiannis Tseklenis, Dolly Boucoyannis, Angelos Bratis and Sophia Kokosalaki created designs for the i-D concept store in Kolonaki, the fashion quarter in the city center of Athens.
The i-D concept store at Kanari 12 in Kolonaki will host Tseklenis tribute until the 29th of April. With drawings and prints by the greek designer and new creations inspired by Tseklenis.
Yiannis Tseklenis is considered as the fashion designer that put Greece on the contemporary fashion map. His creations have been carried by leading stores in more than 20 countries and Tseklenis has won a niche in the wardrobe of thousands of well-dressed women, men and children. It started in 1965 until the nineties.
Since 1991 he works as a designer and art director in collaboration with companies. The decoration of the yellow-blue busses in Athens is by this talented designer.
In 1997, Tseklenis donated his archive of 600 ensembles, photographs, patterns and drawings to the Peloponnesian Folklore Foundation.
I had the pleasure to visit to tribute and meet the designers, photos are taken with my smartphone...but you can have a look at the tribute yourself until the 29th of April!
