Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

First...the mannequin IS beautiful! Next...this national costume (which belongs probably to one area of Greece....I assume there might be many more[?!] according to the various regions of Greece) is a fine example of balance between richness and elegance! I find resemblance to the national costumes of Romania, the motif of birds and the fore and aft thick aprons.

25 Jan 2013 6:59am

@Japanalia: The love for nature makes these costumes resemble each other. Yes every region in Greece has its own unique designs. Athens has museums specializing in these costumes, they are very interesting. Hope one day you visit them, greetings from Athens.
