WHO ARE WE ?
Inspired by Greece, we are an online boutique showcasing a curation of premium Greek fashion accessories,
made by a collective of emerging fashion designers, artisans and jewellers in Greece.
We know you are seeking unique, desirable pieces to accent your wardrobe, and like us, you appreciate good design, especially well-made accessories – that are not mass-produced. With you in mind, we have travelled throughout Greece, seeking artisans who epitomise creative excellence. As a result we bring to you a selection of exquisite pieces, we know you will love. We hope to inspire you with our selection.
By shopping with us, you are buying pieces made directly from Greek hands to yours. In doing so, your purchase is supporting the makers and contributing to keeping alive the small workshops in Greece; helping artisans preserve their traditions and craftsmanship skills, along with the working communities they employ.
We invite you to discover fashion that is 100% made in Greece.
Founder, Helen Tirekidis is a 2nd generation Greek-Australian. Helen’s parents migrated to Australia in 1950’s, escaping a life of economic hardship in Greece. Helen’s father George, built a wholesale distribution business, and her mother Despina applied her embroidery skills and worked as a seamstress. Inspired by her parents, and having held senior management roles within high fashion brands such as Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Longchamp and Giorgio Armani, Helen decided to create her own brand called GREEK STYLE COUNCIL.
“The ties between Greece and Australia run deep, so it seems about time the rising stars of Greek fashion become better known in Australia, just as Australian designers are becoming so well received in Europe. Who better than a Greek-Australian and especially the enterprising Helen Tirekidis to do that.” – Marion Hume (International Fashion Journalist)
