According to Homer, when Zeus met Dione they gave birth to the most beautiful being on earth, Aphrodite. Their love, thousands of years later, continues to inspire… Zeus+Δione is a fashion brand inspired by the Greek mythology and the richness of the Greek heritage. Every creation is produced using exclusively Greek materials and artisans, who keep the traditional techniques alive in every corner of Greece.
Two women with a vision
Two young women with a passion for Greece and fashion, Mareva Grabowski and Dimitra Kolotoura who are two friends with different professional backgrounds (finance and marketing respectively) joined forces in reaction to an article that they read in a magazine a few summers ago in the foreign Press which argued that Greece’s creativity had sunk together with its finances. They decided to react to this by supporting the local economy and proving that in Greece today there are still bright escape routes. Their creations are manufactured by talented Greeks and all the materials used are at all costs Greek. They have chosen the silk fabrics from Soufli – which was one of the largest centres of silk production in the world during the 19th century- as well as traditional Cretan motifs and decorative items from Metsovo and Argos. The most skillful artisans and even nuns have been chosen from around Greece, with the aim of preserving and promoting the traditional Greek art of weaving, shoemaking and embroidery.
A Greek signature with international presence
The purely Greek fashion brand ZEUS+ΔIONE made its debut at the international markets in 2012, at Paris Fashion Week. Noone expected what would follow. Today, the brand can be found at the largest stores across the world and is among the brands with a Greek signature which have achieved their aim: to support the timeless values of Greek production, to unravel aspects of Greek artisanship and creativity, as well as to promote the wealth of the Greek culture and allow it to travel across the planet.
