Towards a Costume Culture Museum


The Hellenic Costume Society was founded in 2003 to bring together everyone involved with costume in Greece. Its interests are many and varied: Greek regional costumes, historical clothing, theatre costumes, fabrics, manufacturing and decoration techniques, fashion and contemporary creation. The Society aims to research and collect data on topics from the fields of fashion and costume, to process and study the data and to publish the research findings in conferences, exhibitions and related publications. The main objective of the Hellenic Costume Society is to create a Costume Culture Museum.
