About the Brands of the Earth Day 2024 Announcement

About 2WO+1NE=2
2WO+1NE=2 is an ethical designer brand focused on creating sustainable and tailored ready-to-wear, based in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 2017 by Stella Panagopoulou and Valisia Gotsi. 

Through a synthesis of minimalism and deconstructivism, and espousing the principle of environmental consciousness, 2wo+1ne=2 aims to sound out the cultural fluidity of an increasingly nomadic generation. Based on the design project of Nomadism, each collection is inspired and dedicated to a different city across the globe, drawing elements from its art scene, architecture, cinema, music, and people. The brand converts the beauty and uniqueness of each place into its edgy collections, by incorporating their craftsmanship techniques and aesthetic concept. The crystallization of notions, essences, and shapes of each given place, is worked into the garments themselves. 

2WO+1NE=2 strives for a perpetual battle with conservatism and conventionality, envisaging clothes not as strictly functional everyday items but as multidimensional structures, maintaining at the same time fashion’s allure and scrutinizing urge.

About Zeus+Δione
Z+D is the brainchild of Dimitra Kolotoura and Mareva Grabowski, who founded the brand in 2013 in response to the Greek economic crisis. Instead of wallowing in the bleak news about closing businesses and loss of jobs, they wanted to find a creative way to overcome the perception of inevitable decline and to turn the crisis into an opportunity. Thus, ZEUS+ΔΙΟΝΕ was born. 

Their mission started with craftsmanship, spending a year sourcing artisans, workshops and craft-makers around Greece. They travelled to Soufli in search for fine silk and Metsovo in Epirus where they rediscovered traditional embroideries.
