El Greco in Fashion

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    Inspired by the work of Doménicos Theotokópoulos, El Greco, the internationally acclaimed  Greek fashion designer Yannis Tseklenis presents an exhibition at the Teloglion Foundation of Art in Thessaloniki. The exhibition comprises costumes, fabrics and garments which depict famous paintings and patterns drawn by the acclaimed painter of the Spanish Renaissance. According to Tseklenis, the work showcased was initially created in 1977 during a long staying of the designer in the United States. The design patterns depicted on the garments are the work of Italian craftsmen.

Tseklenis pays tribute to the great El Greco naming his exhibition “My own reference to El Greco”. The display which is part of the “El Greco from scene to screen” group of exhibitions, was inaugurated yesterday and it will run until April 16.
