Nektarios Elias Mertios
He was born and grew up in Rethymno, Crete. Since he was a child, a tremendous love for art, fashion, interior architecture and decoration were cultured inside of him.
That is why he primarily studied interior designing, architecture and decoration and took his diploma from the Middlesex University in London, UK. His love for fashion was stronger and he started courses in fashion designing, styling and endymatology at the institute of specialization Intergraphics.
After having presented his first collection for the spring-summer of 2012, called "Marinero", he is taking part in the Athens Exclusive Designers Week for the second time, presenting his collection for the autumn-winter of 2012-13, called "La Diva Divina".
This collection is inspired of and sacred to the one and only Diva, Maria Callas, who won the title of the most well dressed woman in the universe and with her presence, style and personality she achieved to stay in history, eternally!
The collection consists of 12 haute couture classic line outfits, for every moment and every age. The color pallet includes black, white and red tones. The fur is intermingled with satin, brokar with lace, taffeta along with silk, providing a sense of differentiation and uniqueness.
