A fashion social motivated show with many designers took place at the Athenian Megaron Mousikis,organised by IPprojects. It was an evening filled of fashion shows with political and social messages. Greece has been in crisis almost for ten years and experiencing the longest period of recession, fashion couldn’t pretend that is not visible. The risk was big but audience responded with applause and surprise when the easily recognizable red vests of ΣΧΕΔΙΑ-SHCEDIA (monthly magazine that helps fellow citizens to rejoin society), worn over the mosaic motif clothes of Pavlina Kyrkou (graduate of Theory and History of Art(2014), Athens School of Fine Arts and Psycology (2008), University of Athens.)
The backdrop of 3D mapping presented modern creators of fashion and visual arts. One of them was the Greek artist Adam Martinakis (3d digital image/rendering – animation, digital sculpture, digital video, new media).
Marilena Kranioti (visual artist of Athens School of Fine Arts-ΑΣΚΤ) worked on a face-construction, creating an illusion of Adam Martinakis work, a tableau vivant.
#Freethenipple was the message of Dimitra Elpasidou and band aid clearly implied the sexual harassment women suffering.
Emy Pappas affection for traditional techniques,headed her to make handmade-ornamended-pieces, as the sandals either Alchimia Vegan Shoes.
Dimitrios Konstantopoulos lined up within one of his collection stage jacket, hat republica from Karfil, pair of sunglasses Mujosh (30 C Eyewear Optimal Care).
All these five designers had participated during Art & Fashion CreativeWear Exhibition in Athens School of Fine Arts the last November, with great success. Dimitris Grammaticoyiannis was the curator then and now had the conception of mixing their garments with social STATEments.
Marionettes was the title of PALCO show and Maria Ignazio Zairi (Artist of Athens School of Fine Arts and Tinos School of Fine Arts) made it true with the props she made. The hairdresser Στέφανος Κεσσάτης of Palco professional leading three amazing female dancers, enthused the audience. Make up artist:Edmea.
Alexandra Apsokardou & Desotnia Kilakou made a clear reference to Burning Man Festival under the title Leave no Trace.
J.Kalupahana‘s show stood out with a very strong and democratic message. We all together fight for a Democratic and united Europe!

Commedia dell’arte show with optimistic colors and motifs!
The last but not least show, was from the legendary brand Giannetos.The historical fashion house, since 1907, presented looks wth references from 30’s, 50’s, 70’s and the most contemporary trends up to now .But this was not enough for Takis Giannetos and Dimitris Grammatikoyiannis who both of them were deeply moved by Julian Assange arrest. Their will to defence the right of free speech in an open society defines the hashtag that presented on tuxedos and 3d mapping #freespeech.
