Designers participating at the bazaar are all members of the Hellenic Fashion Designers Association (HFD), namely the organizers of the increasingly popular and successful Diners Athens Collections InStyle.

Local fashion talent is joining forces once again for a good cause. Following the first edition of the Athens Collections bazaar which took place in June, and was deemed a success, a group of fashion designers will come together and present various goods next weekend, December 16 and 17, at the downtown Bacaro complex.

The designers participating in the event are all members of the Hellenic Fashion Designers Association (HFD), namely the organizers of the increasingly popular and successful Diners Athens Collections InStyle.

Participating at next week’s style bazaar are the following HFD members: Angelos Bratis, Aslanis, Celia D, Chara Lebessi, Christos Costarellos, Christos Mailis, Dimitris Dassios, Erifilli, Katerinalexandraki, Kathy Heyndels, Konstantinos, Lena Katsanidou, Liana Camba, Loukia, Maria Mastori, Nikos-Takis, Parthenis, Pavlos Kyriakides, Smaragdi, Yiorgos Eleftheriades and Veloudakis.

Once more, the event is organized under the auspices of the City of Athens, with the free press weekly Athens Voice acting as communications sponsor. Proceeds from the sale of garments and accessories will go toward the capital’s homeless shelter. Expect heavy discounts as well as drinks and music.

Charity and fashion are also linking up in the Greek leg of global campaign Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, which continues its many fruitful activities.

For the Christmas season, the campaign is promoting a special edition, created by four Greek fashion houses: Erifilli working in tandem with accessories designer Aris Geldis, Makis Tselios, duo Mi-Ro and Thessaloniki-based Simeoni. The special-edition clothing items will be available at the Attica department store as well as other outlets for a month. Proceeds from the campaign’s sales benefit the To Spiti tou Stochou Center for Cancer Prevention.
