Her great love has always been the ancient Greek chiton and admired all
those who had reinvented. (Mariano Fortuny Madame Vionnet Jean Desses
James Galanos Chanel, Dior) Vasso is rightfully as genuine Greek, one of
those who wanted to play with the chiton. While studying in fashion school
Veloudakis and Fashion Institute of Technology special attention was given to
education in draping. She wanted to escape the limitations of industrial
patterns because as she says (I see clothes as wearable works of art, three-
dimensional as I like to design).
Great admirer of architecture is inspired by the modern to create her atelier
collection. Her collections are notable for their ceaseless experimentation and
re-evaluation of the classical and the avant-garde. With inspirations drawn
from architecture to theatre, the results are designs which place great
emphasis on geometry, and the female form.
