Waiting to publish the video of my experience in Kastoria, i am sharing with you some photos of the interview with Maria Papadopoul fashion designer and owner of PKZ (she is the second generation).
I dedicated a post to passing work down from father to son in Greek families: click here to read it.
Maria is a splendid woman, she was born in Kastoria but speaks five languages, she studied at Central Saint Martins of London and takes care of PKZ’s image.
She showed me the whole collection which is rich with Blackglama and American Legend furs, with meticulous attention to detail: lace and silk for the inside, mink fur with grosgrain inlay. just think that she used the printed image of Melina Mercouri on the linings enriching them with stones and embroidery.
A unique collection, fruit of detailed research, that i really liked very much.
Maria was able to put across all her passion for her own work showing her designs, the Blackgama’s publicity campaigns, old catalogues,vintage photos of old collections, that is to say she showed me her world made of art, history, love and fur, lots of fur.
