While the rest of the world isn’t looking to copy Greece’s economic situation, it’s definitely stealing the nation’s style this season.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and runway shows as part of New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks have shown an emerging trend of Hellenic style. Models dressed as goddesses and warriors have paraded the catwalks in flowing one shouldered draping Grecian dresses, gladiator sandals and armour-styled modern tees.

Fashion powerhouse Versace has lead the way creating garments with Greek motifs and colours from blue and white combinations to vibrant reds with Greek alphabet graphics. Metallic belts, sandals and draping Grecian-style dresses will be popping up anywhere and everywhere.
