World Exclusive: Spyridon Tsagarakis

For the first time in history, acclaimed artist/designer Spyridon Tsagarakis promotes Greece worldwide with his inspirational artistic technique, showcasing the Ancient Agora of Greece and The Temple of Hephaestus in Athens, Greece (located in the Parthenon).

The avant-garde creations, of world-acclaimed designer Spyridon Tsagarakis revives the classical notion of perfection and balance in a powerful visual presentation that explores the fluidity between fashion and art. An established pioneer of a complex and sculptural technique, Spyridon's creations reference back to Ancient Greek Art and are considered to be a national heritage treasure.

Based in London, Tsagarakis is a Fashion Designer and Artist who has been on a journey of continuous experimentation with form, that has been an object of admiration and celebration across the globe in publications such as Vogue and the New York Times. From an early age, the smell of oil paint in his grandfather's studio and the perfection of the female figure cultivated the designer's desire to shape his artistic identity in the multi-disciplinary field of Fashion. The impact of his technique has, as a result, collaboration requests with the industry's most promising voices such as Alexander McQueen among others. His signature technique made Spyridon a Visionaire with uncompromised vision who tends to set his own schedule when it comes to showing his work. Although the complexity of his designs is extraordinary, Tsagarakis is showing the body naked and draped, showcasing the similarities between ancient Greek statues and modern Greek muses. Fascinated by the pure orders of the Acropolis and the aesthetic idiom of modern Greek reality, the designer made history as the only artist with full access at the Temple of Hephaestus and the Ancient Agora of Athens, in Greece. Both the Ancient Greek sculptures and Spyridon's designs dance together in perfect harmony in a cultural presentation that celebrates this meticulous artistry. Spyridon's technique intertwines with the archaeological site of the Ancient Agora and the Temple of Hephaestus in a unique way, thus his project is considered to be one of the most influential in the history of Greek fashion and the first-ever fashion as performance art project envisioned by a greek designer/ artist. The result is a visually stunning short-film that takes the viewer's breath away. His cutting-edge designs blend ideally with the greek antiquities, creating an atmosphere that brings back to life Greece's glorious golden age in the 5th Century BC. The selection of the fabric, which is mainly pure silk and metallic silk 18k, is used to replicate the effects of marble and make the pieces seem carved from the inside rather than chiselled from the outside. This attention to folding is mirrored in Spyridon's technique, as the richness of the folds and the depth of the creases channels the signature elements that make an ancient greek sculpture symmetrical and timeless. In his own words, Tsagarakis highlights that " his vision was to obtain lifeless raw materials and transform them into art that can be worn". His vision gave birth to a world-first collaboration of tremendous historic importance not only for Greece but globally.

Spyridon would like to offer his heartfelt thank you to the Person responsible for making this world exclusive partnership happen, the head of the Athens Ephorate of Antiquities, Mrs Eleni Banou. Spyridon feels honoured to be the first artist /designer to be allowed to showcase his creations within this incredible location of the Ancient Agora of Greece and the Temple of Hephaestus and also To Mrs Maria Liaska archaeologist EPKA and all Ancient agora staff, to his team, George Katsanakis photographer, Panoverino for the video, Ross Georgiou, Nicolas Viloiotis ,Hara Papanikolaou, Vivian Katsari,

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
