The 80s had their moments too....

Here are some looks picked randomly from my Christy Turlington archive that show how the 80s had good moments as well as bad - it was not all bad design and bad clothing! This comes after my favorite fashion blogger, The Sartorialist, posted photos from London girls doing the 80s revival. Most of the negative comments condemned the whole decade as bad for fashion, but with the photos here, I beg to differ.

Stand photos

I finally got the photos from the official photographer, not very good but they are the only ones so far. Looks good, doesn΄t it? We had a bit of a problem with the water wall - it was splashing water further than expected, hence the Plexiglas panels around the pebble tank.

I learned today that the exhibition stand I designed for the EYDAP company (it is the company that provides and maintains the water and drainage network in Athens) won an award for Best Stand at T.I.F. (Thessaloniki International Fair). Feeling happy as it is one of my favorite stands in T.I.F. I will post photos of it as soon as I get some from the official photographer.

Muse and inspiration

And to start with a nice photo, here is my favorite model of all time, muse and inspiration, Christy Turlington! The photo is from the August issue of US Vogue, courtesy of Conde Nast Inc.

A few words about myself...

I am a designer, working in an architectural firm. We design and construct stands for exhibitions, museums (permanent and temporary exhibitions as well as the buildings themselves), offices, shops, showrooms and special installations as well as public spaces. The company I work for has a website, www.tetragon.gr , where you can see more of the work we do.
I have also studied fashion design and as a civil engineer for some years - but I never got around getting my degree. The world of design was much more appealing to me and finally won me over completely. I really enjoy doing what I do!
I live and work in Thessaloniki, although my job has taken me to many places, in Greece and abroad. I enjoy meeting people, getting to know them and learn from them - it makes life so much more interesting!

First post, hello to everyone!

This is my first post! My blog is beggining. I hope I will be able to keep up a bit with this, as I am new to blogging and it's been ages since I kept a diary of any kind. Please bear with me as I get used to this. I hope I have something of importance to say for others. More to come in the next days.
