From one generation to the next
Nick Kriemadis was raised in tailoring shops from an early age. From one generation to the next, he was taught the art of tailoring and repairing by his grandmother and mother. In the 1950s, his grandmother opened the first tailoring shop in the center of Athens and a few years later, his mother opened another shop too. Although his mother opened her own tailoring and repairing shop, she has kept up the tradition until now and her business maintains one of the best and well-known businesses in Athens.
As Nick claims, “repairing and altering the garments is much more difficult than creating them. You need to know all those little secrets that will make the garment still look brand new and fix all the imperfections perfectly”.
