SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

This particular garment is part of the Sophia Kokosalaki Spring 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection. Once again the creator was inspired by her place of origin, Crete. A special feature of this dress is the tulle and the beadwork that forms the horns of the Minoan bull on its bust. In the photo, a rhyton in the shape of a bull’s head, an excellent sample of Minoan stonework exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion.
