Mary Katrantzou Presents a Charity Fashion Show at the Temple of Poseidon
All proceeds will be donated to Marianna Vardinoyannis’ Association of Friends of Children with cancer “ELPIDA”
October 3rd will be a special night for many reasons. Internationally renowned Greek fashion designer Mary Katrantzou will show her Spring Summer 2020 collection at the temple of Poseidon in Sounio.
Mary Katrantzou is collaborating with Marianna Vardinoyannis’ Association of Friends of Children with cancer «ELPIDA» and all proceeds will be donated to them.
The show is not just historic because it will display Mary Katrantzou’s unique creations but because it’s the first time a private function has ever been allowed to take place at this archaeological site.
The approval was given by the Central Archaeological Council last July after «ELPIDA» requested it emphasizing to the philanthropic purpose of the event. Nevertheless the Culture Ministry has set very strict rules, including restrictions on the sound volume and lighting intensity.
Τhe famous designer has visited the “ELPIDA” children in the past and its cause is very important to her. The association is celebrating its thirtieth birthday this year.
The collection Mary Katrantzou will be presenting is inspired by the monument itself. Her creations, made using multiple textile techniques, are inspired by the philosophy, arts, literature and science linked to the temple.
Oscar winning composer, Vangelis Papathanasiou, who has worked with Mary Katrantzou in the past, will compose the music for the show.
A Magic Cabinet is proud to be one of the sponsors for this memorable event.
