It may seem like exhibition central on here at the moment (I've been to three in about as many weeks, go me), but some things are just too exciting to keep to yourself. Earlier this week I was invited to the opening of the Universal Greek Fashion Designers exhibit at the Hellenic Centre. They've combined past and present, featuring contemporary greats such as Mary Katrantzou, Sophia Kokosalaki and Marios Schwab with six greats who have helped to revolutionise fashion design in Greece. It's rather easy to forget past collections when we're always focused on what's coming next and I definitely welcomed revisiting the lampshade skirt from Katrantzou's SS11 collection and realising just how far her aesthetic has moved on in little over a year. Ever the dutiful daughter, I brought my Mum along, who'd conveniently stolen my Newgen t-shirt to wear (the evidence is here).
This exhibition is free and is only on until March 22nd, so make sure you visit if you're in the area to admire some of these creations up close. The centre is a short walk from Selfridges, so don't blame me for any inspired purchases!
