Greece-based fashion designer Eleni Hassioti runs her own firm since 1994. At her downtown Thessaloniki shop she creates ready-to-wear bi-annually seasonal collections, produced in relatively small quantities, as well as tailor-made haute couture items and wedding gowns. Eleni’s work has always been modern with a retro twist. In her recent collections though, she really turned into a swing aficionado and developed her own swing style that draws its inspiration from the lines of the 1930s and 1940s. In this context, Eleni has created swing outfits for various bands of the genre and for lindy-hop groups in Athens and Thessaloniki, Greece. She collaborates regularly with the Swing and Swim International Festival, presenting her collections. elenichasioti.gr – facebook page
