In an ever-changing world, the fashion industry mixes various blends of colours and designs to produce the top-most luxurious fashion brands in the world. Each designer exhibits an individual essence, a sense of one’s culture embellished with the finest materials cascading into an array of ethnic wonders. And when talking about such exemplary individuals, one cannot miss out on mentioning ” The Queen of Greek Couture – Celia Kritharioti “, who creates contemporary art on traditional pieces of fabric.
Celia Kritharioti is widely known for her aesthetic sense and broad artistic vision, through which she can design clothes and accessories that are naturally alluring yet extravagantly enriched with mesmerizing adornments.
Needless to say, she perfectly captures the core of Greek culture – simplistic yet conspicuous. Though as big a name as she is in the fashion industry today, one almost finds it hard to believe fashion was not her initial career choice. Contextually, Celia’s epiphany sparked when her father purchased Tsouchlou’s House. Built-in 1906, Tsouchlou symbolized the history of Greek women’s fashion, particularly in haute couture. When she started attending the University of Commerce, she would sometimes visit the studio and sew clothes for herself to wear on special occasions.
A few years later, Celia supplemented her father’s efforts and led him to the top of the fashion world. Her success story is impressive indeed, though clearly, she put her blood, sweat, and tears to achieve what she has now. With her passion, drive, focus, and immense talent, it comes off as no surprise that she is known as Greece’s pride today.
Being named one of the best 6 haute couture designers in the industry, there is no doubt that she lives up to her reputation. Her dresses have been worn and showcased by some of the top models globally, including Karolina Kurkova, Elle MacPherson, Claudia Schiffer, Leticia Casta, Naomi Campbell, and Natalia Vodianova. Not only models but several A-list celebrities such as Samantha Barks, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez have also chosen Celia’s Haute Couture collection for several events.
What especially differentiates Celia Kritharioti from other designers is her ethic towards elevation within culture; she withholds the integrity of ancient Greece while incorporating modern trends that accelerate the beauty of her clothing to an unfathomable extent.
Elegance acts as the foundation of Greek culture, and toppled with modern-day elan, Celia Kritharioti has reached a new level in her understanding of what fashion truly means. And through her work of art, she furthers this intellect to all those adorning her creations.
