The Munich Glyptothek, one of the most important museums in Germany, opened its doors on December 16 for the Arsinoe of Thrace collection from Alexandroupolis, welcoming an event of this kind for the first time. Greek women wearing airy silk dresses, the “muses,” filled the Museum.
The event entitled “The Dresses of Olympus”/”Die Kleider des Olymp” was organized by the Fashion and Design Academy of Munich in collaboration with “Arsinoe of Thrace,” creating a unique presentation of the ancient aesthetic in art through the silk dresses of the Greek collection.
“Many Greek and German guests from different professions: politics, economics, art and fashion participated, dynamically responding to our qualitative and innovative efforts,” said the company’s announcement.
Deputy Minister of Development Athanasios Skordas and President of the Hellenic-German Chamber N. Maillis also attended the event.
