Katia Dimopoulou is the founder and artistic director of Peplos. Born and raised in Athens- Greece, she has lived in Geneva, Hong Kong and New York. She studied Political Science and has been a journalist since 1988. She held position as Editor-in-Chief at various publications such as Harper’s Bazaar (Greece) and Marie Claire (Greece). She is a lover of fashion, literature and theatre, but even more of sailing and diving during the summertime in the deep blue waters of Greece. She is married and has a daughter, Melia Kreiling, who is a working actress in London and a collaborator of Peplos.
Peplos is Katia’s most recent project, which formally binds her love of fashion and the arts; her goal is to collaborate with as many artists as possible and create a wearable art gallery.
