Fashion is art



Fashion is the most powerful kind of art. I’ve always thought that fashion is a combination of a movement, pattern and architecture. Overall, it shows what we are and what we want to become. This perception gave me the spark to follow the dream of becoming a fashion designer. So I focused on finding a school that specializes in it, and I learn about the Secondary School of Apprenticeship of Thessaloniki, OAED.

My journey during my studies in 2nd EPAS was full of amazing learning and life experiences in the fashion world. There were lots of events that pushed me to keep evolving my skills. Moreover, my participation in the ERASMUS program was a unique experience, I had the privilege to travel to the fashion capital, Milan. In addition,I had the chance to work in an atelier and study in two of the best schools in the city.

All the courses and work experience I obtained during my studies in 2nd EPAS helped me to achieve my goal. I got my certification, with the best grades. Now I believe I acquired a strong foundation during my extraordinary journey of my studies and I feel very confided about my professional future as a fashion designer.
