In the basement area of the Purification Tanks, visitors will find an autonomous space exhibiting basic 80’s trends as well as prominent creations from the decade’s most important Greek designers. Accompanying an array of photos, one will be able to find original garments styled in popular outfit combinations of the time. As the space is quite suitable for it, we will explore the possibility of live 80s fashion shows. Moreover, the place will be periodically and temporarily modified so as to revive the visual and audio experience of an 80s disco.
