Inspired by the "Daedalus and Icarus" myth, Avgousta Theodoulou won the main prize and managed to impress the audience with her craftsmanship skills, the tridimensional pieces and the sculptural coats.


'' DAEDALEA collection talks about the human struggle to achieve freedom and higher quality of living, as well as for the pitfall of using intelligence without wisdom which can lead to decay and tragedy...

Human's anguish to rush for quick change, underestimates the big risk of getting trapped by his own creations.

The change he pursues may well become his own chaser.''



Daedalus created the complex Labyrinth, but he and his son Icarus ended up imprisoned in it. He then created two pairs of fine crafted wings that let them escape.

His son, Icarus, totally delighted by the sense of freedom, dared to fly as high as he could go, ignoring his father's warnings.

The sun softened the wax of his wings and Icarus found a tragic death, in the deep blue sea.
