Greek Dress

Greek Dress on Exhibition

Niki, John's wife, made most of the costume on display, except for the stockings and the shoes.

The 400 folds in the skirt represent the 400 years that Greece was under Ottoman rule.

During the revolution Greek men wore this costume and it continues to have great significance to all Greeks.

The stockings would originally have been covered by leggings in the same fabric as the skirt.
