style odyssey : what is the first thing that comes in your mind at the hearing of the word 80’s?Irini Karayannopoulou :Sequins! The more they shine the better. They are everywhere, in different colors, shapes and ways, they are moving, they are shaking, they are talking and they come in heavy doses. They go really well with mullets and other spectacular 80’s curiosities such as hair perms, hair highlights, white socks and stonewashed jeans

style odyssey :do you consider that Greek 80’s had their own identity? Irini Karayannopoulou :I am sure that the Greek 80’s were more 80’s than any other 80’s around, in fact they still are

style odyssey: tell me about a memory from 80’s that has stuck on your mind?  Irini Karayannopoulou :Roller and ice skating twice a week
