AIA collaborates with the Hellenic American Union to present the exhibition Hellenic Traditional Costumes with drawings by Gisis Papageorgiou. The exhibition is curated by Louisa Karapidaki. Hellenic traditional costumes from all over Greece, the mainland and the islands; woven and embroidered; made of silk, wool, linen, or cotton; featuring ornate gold-stitched or colorful decorations, are all presented together as a cultural treasure attesting to the vast Greek cultural heritage. The exhibition gives travelers the opportunity to browse through Greece’s sartorial tradition, which furthermore constitutes a global source of inspiration to the present day.
