When famous Greek designer Vrettos Vrettakos designed his favorite comic book heroes on paper and then using fabric, no one could have imagined his promising future. Just a few years later, Greek and international VIPs gather in his boutique to acquire one of his creations. His personality and professional orientation was greatly affected by his mother, who was a seamstress.
Internationally famous singers and actors such as Shakira, Beyonce and J.Lopez as well as Greek stars such as Eleni Menagki, Despoina Vandi, Elena Foureira and Zeta Makripoulia are only some of his customers.
Vrettos Vrettakos stated “ I have worked with some of the “hottest” names in the Greek music industry, such as Eleni Foureira, Katerina Stikoudi and Zeta Makripoulia. Some of the dresses I made for them drew a lot of attention, as they were kind of unusual. Take for example the dress with the 2 meter-long tail Foureira wore at the Mad awards. I also have to admit I felt really proud when Zeta Makripoulia made a special request for my clothes in the “Some like it hot” musical, when all the other actors’ clothes were designed by Deny Vachlioti.”
One week ago Vrettakos and his wife Lily Apostolou had their first child. “Nothing can compare to it. Professional success flatters one’s ego, but a baby is life’s natural evolution” said the happy father.
Rumors have it that Shakira will be choosing him to design her outfit in her new Mundial video clip and the same for Jennifer Lopez for her new video clip “First Love.” Vrettos Vrettakos is one more Greek that proves willpower and patience can achieve anything.
“We are running a Marathon, not a 100-meter run, and life gives its own answers as it progresses” said the Greek designer.
