The Outnet fashion shooting in Athens
Chic online fashion outlet, THE OUTNET.COM
was created in April 2009 by the people behind NET-A-PORTER.COM. THE OUTNET has quickly established itself as the go-to destination for the global, style-conscious shopper looking for the best designer products.
In May 2013, THE OUTNET’s fashion team traveled to Athens for the site’s first-ever location photoshoot. The team styled model Ksenia in pieces chosen from some of the 250+ designers stocked on-site, ranging from Charlotte Olympia and Roksanda Illinic to Roberto Cavalli and Hervé Léger.
The images were taken by well-known Greek photographer, Thanassis Krikis, and were featured within THE OUTNET’s Dress Me section under ‘luxe traveler.’
Thanassis Krikis was born in Kastoria, Greece. He studied fashion design and illustration at Parsons School of Design in New York.
He is also a St. Martins College of Art and Design graduate in Fashion/Textiles. He started his career as a fashion designer in New York. He has worked as a fashion editor in several magazines. Since 2005 is working as a photographer based in London and Athens, contributing to major International and Greek publications.
Hairstylist Nicolas Villiotis and make-up artist Athina Karakitsou were integral to the photoshoot.
Bright colors, floor-length flowing dresses, and glamorous prints appear throughout the images, and close-up pictures showcase must-have sunglasses, jewelry, and shoes. All of the products were available on THE OUTNET.
