A few days ago, the Central Council for Cultural Monuments ΚΣΝΜ gave permission to hold a haute couture fashion show on the Acropolis, Cape Sounion and other archaeological sites of interest in Greece.
The fashion show of the world famous Dior fashion house will take place in Kallimarmaro after the ministers Κεντρικό Συμβούλιο Νεώτερων Μνημείων gave the green light to the Dior Celebrates Greece event.
The ΚΣΝΜ members also approved the issuance of a license for photography, filming and aerial cinematography, as well as the live broadcast of the event and its online posting on the official website of the French house of Dior.
Dior’s request for photography and video filming of archaeological sites, i.e. Acropolis (photography only), Herodium, Ancient Agora, Sounion and Ancient Nemea, was unanimously approved.
The Commission decided that in this way Greece will be given an additional “advertisement”, the representation of the country in the world space at a quite “worthy level”.
