For me it all started at AXDW FW 10-11 when I first saw Celebrity Skin! It was love at first sight with this magnificent gray vest! I had to learn more... Then the Greek Idol launched where every Monday I was watching Ada Livitsanou in these amazing outfits that reminded me of something and I absolutely knew of what! Once you get into the spirit of Celebrity Skin's designs you never get out of it! Impossible to forget! So the story continues till yesterday when I saw Eleonora's Zouganeli outfit seen in this post. Ok it was about time to take action and find out more about the creative duo of Dimitris Strepkos and Eleni Mparla. I am lucky enough that Dimitris Strepkos found spare time in his busy and creative life to answer me these questions. I tried to keep it simple and interesting with this three words concept. Hope you like it!
