Vicky Kaya tells the story of the most successful models of our times, who managed to exceed all expectations beyond the catwalk, but also to stand out in the field of entertainment and business. Fashion has always been a multibillion business which functions with special rules, research, respect and an artful point of view. Models are a marginal piece of a unique fashion puzzle.

We were very happy to meet, journalist and TV presenter, Mary Sinatsaki. Mary really enjoyed the richness of the lectures: ”I feel like a student who takes notes every three seconds…Fashion expresses me and it is totally fascinating! Fashion is everywhere, everyday in every corner!. I admire the multi tasking girls of Modeling! They just seem to have it all! Coco Rocha and Cara Delevingne are my favorite”!
Top model Dimitra Kostaki along with Vicky Kaya shared a long experience on the catwalk. Marios Lekkas, also paid his dues on the international modeling arena. Panos Pitsilidis, when asked to compare the quality of fashion magazines in Greece and abroad, he stated that in Greece, since the crisis started, magazines,unfortunately, do not have the luxury to invest on big budget productions.
According to Marios Lekkas, ”modeling is a profession that is very difficult nowadays, but if you love it, do it and do it well! This profession, by its nature, can offer you lots of knowledge and experience by traveling and meeting people around the world. Fashion is all about new ideas, art and commerce”.
