JUDAS

JUDAS MAGAZINE has made me the honour....

One very personal and one of the most interesting interviews i have ever been requested to give.

"THE GREEK JEWELLERY AND ARTEFACT DESIGNER THAT CREATED THE MASKS ON THE COVER OF JUDAS’ FIRST ISSUE OPENS UP ABOUT ANXIETY AND BEING GENUINE. THIS IS CHRISTINA IOANNIDOU IN HER OWN WORDS." 

http://www.judasmag.com/blog/2016/5/24/meet-christina-ioannidou-the-woman-behind-the-masks

 

Judas disdains the pop culture that makes young women think that the best thing they can be is sexy. If that makes us feminists, so be it. Celebrity worship is not a part of their brand culture. Instead, Judas thinks that people should be considered extraordinary for their achievements, thoughts or struggles. 

They want to sell ideas rather than products. Editorial independence is the basis of their work. Every stylist, editor and writer has the freedom to highlight a product, brand or company without interference from the owners of the publication or its marketing department.

They love fashion and are not ashamed of it. Believing that fashion journalism should have the same research, high standards and narrative excellence than one should expect to find in quality newspapers. 

Believing in a government for the people, not the corporations. Many are disillusioned with mainstream politics and have turned their backs to it. They want to connect readers with the world around them so that they feel empowered to affect it. Not going to tell you what to think or what to wear. Judas' mission is to spark people's imagination and cultivate opinion.

Ideas can change the world.

This is Judas' manifesto and i love it. This is what they stand for and i admire it. (text taken from www.judasmag.com)

THE MONO SPACE

(Headband and muzzle - leather/aluminium - entry from MonoSpace Shoreditch last March) 

MONO Opened the doors of its first pop up store in Shoreditch / March 19th '15 and on Thursday the 11th of June was the launch of their second concept store, this time in Notting Hill / 79-81 Ledbury street. Founded by Marina Bury Christellou and Myrta Mitropoulou, MONO represents their shared passion to help Greek design go a step further in the global fashion and design arena. Those girls are just going to ROCK this!

So what is MONO? It is a new mobile fashion concept store giving a UK platform for exclusive pieces by emerging contemporary Greek designers that will pop up in different London locations. "Each space is curated to reflect the aesthetic character of the neighbourhood it temporarily inhabits and runs for a period of ten days and new locations every 3-4 months"

MONO is an ongoing, organic project having as a vision to travel more and make appearances in other European cities and furthermore to present a collective Greek initiative to the rest of the world. And i have no doubts about this vision coming to life.

MONOSPACE in Notting Hill will be open until the 21st of June 2015. Make sure you visit! X

Thank you Lancia for those beautiful words.

"Tribes and traditional costumes from various parts of the world have inspired Greek designer Christina Ioannidou for her graduate collection in jewelry design at London College of Fashion.

Titled "Prosopon", it consists of five masks, all one-off pieces, sold personally through her website and made with contrasting materials: fur, metal and natural leather juxtaposed with bright colors.

Each headpiece has a different muse, daring to use important names from various cultures such as "Tohunga", "Vanda", "Kose", "Rammellzee" and "Cosmic".

The London-based designer is particularly influenced by ethnic-tribal styles that evoke distant cultures and which she reinterprets with charm. Bold geometries, unusual combinations that give the accessories a rather irregular and wild look. But anyways always chic.

The designer is already thinking about her new collection and her new creative studio, soon equipped entirely anew."

London Fashion week 2013

People from around the world, amazing catwalks, fashion, colours and heavily made statements.  London Fashion Week is always a great place to get inspired from and break the rules. London is all about that anyway isn't it?  

Pieces from my "Prosopon" collection worn for the first time in a place outside a photographic studio. I find so exciting the reactions caused by a person putting on a mask. Exposes so many things about the personality and at the same time, hiding it so well.
