ABOUT

DORINA KAPPATOS IS AN ARTIST. FROM FASHION TO FURNITURE & INTERIOR DESIGN AND FROM INSTALLATIONS TO DIGITAL MEDIA ART. HER WORK IS A MANIFESTATION OF HER THOUGHTS ON THE NATURE OF HUMANS AND SOCIETY. THE PHILOSOPHY OF CONSTRUCTIVISM, DE STIJL AND BAUHAUS SHOWS VERY CLEARLY IN EVERYTHING SHE DOES.

 

HER GOAL IS TO PRODUCE WELL DESIGNED CLOTHES FREE OF THE CONSTRAINS OF GENDER AS IT HAS BEEN DEFINED BY SOCIETY.

 

UTILIZING HER KNOWLEDGE OF FURNITURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN, DORINA CREATES PIECES THAT WORK WITH THE BLANK CANVAS THAT IS THE HUMAN BODY, TO MAKE THE WEARER FEEL:

 COMFORTABLE, POWERFUL, DIFFERENT, UNIQUE, EQUAL.

 

SHE GOES AGAINST THE TREND OF CREATING SEASONAL COLLECTIONS AND FOCUSES IN CREATING TIMELESS PIECES WHICH CAN BE USED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AS BUILDING BLOCKS FOR EACH ONES PERSONAL STYLE. LIKE BOOK CHAPTERS, ONE DESIGN WILL COME AFTER THE PREVIOUS AND BE ADDED TO THE COLLECTION THAT WILL COMPRISE THE DORINA KAPPATOS BRAND.

 

TO GUARANTEE THAT THE CLOTHES ARE OF HIGH QUALITY, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME MAKING SURE THAT EVERY SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED IS PAYED FAIRLY FOR THEIR WORK, DORINA COLLABORATES WITH SMALL LOCAL BUSINESSES IN GREECE, SUPPORTING THIS WAY HER LOCAL COMMUNITY. WHILE IN THE NETHERLANDS, SHE IS SUPPORTED BY HER SISTER, JOANNA, WHO IS LOCATED IN GREECE AND HANDLES ALL THE LOCAL OPERATIONS.

 

A GREEK AMERICAN ARTIST, BASED IN THE NETHERLANDS, FLOWING THROUGH THE WORLD.
