THE C EDITION

Meet the Designer

The ‘The C Edition’ was found in June 2017 by Christina Katsaouni. Christina holds a great experience as a fashion writer and editor. She worked for years in some of the greatest fashion magazines and publishing houses in Athens and Paris. The name ‘The C Edition’ reminds a magazine title as Christina wanted to bring into her new project her editorial background. The letter « C »  of the « The C Edition » comes from the word « Circle » as women are a circle. Christina says:   » If all women realised how similar we are and accepted the uniqueness that each of us holds in this common denominator, all we would do would be to support and encourage each other and each of our choices. The C Edition wants to showcase exactly that: That we form a circle and no matter which road each of us has chosen, no matter our life choices, whatever our dreams, whether already realised or in the process of evolving to achieve them, we are here to support women and celebrate with them ».

« Years ago someone asked me if fashion was my life and I plainly responded “No”. My life is life as a whole and all that it encompasses. Life is a puzzle with many equally important pieces, sometimes inanimate and sometimes living, and these make it up and make it unique. A piece of the puzzle is our job, whether related or not to fashion, another is how one wants to spend the free time, a piece is our partner, another one is our family and one is our friends. All pieces must be in equilibrium so that if one goes missing, we can continue our lives. I often hear that friends are the family we have chosen, but what does family really mean? I will simply say that family means love and acceptance. And yes, friends are the family we have chosen and we have created and built with love, devotion and all those moments that we have shared. Friend is the one who will share his second thoughts for the choices you made, to protect, to encourage, to support you. And if you won’t not listen, he will still be there with selflessness, for he is not there to judge but to hold your hand. And that has no gender. Having male friends I must admit that sharing experiences with them is great and I wouldn’t dare to underestimate this relationship, but the uniqueness of the female friendship is undeniable. A woman knows the nature of another woman, she better understands her reactions, the way she thinks, her desires, phobias, dreams, simply because she is a woman herself. There is nothing more important than being a woman and seeing in the eyes of other women the acceptance, support, recognition, admiration, understanding and love. If all women realized how similar we are and accepted the uniqueness that each of us holds in this common denominator, all we would do would be to support and encourage each other and each or our choices. The C Edition wants to showcase exactly that: That we form a circle and no matter which road each of us has chosen, no matter our life choices, whatever our dreams, whether already realized or in the process of evolving to achieve them, we are here to support women and celebrate with them ».

I thank the women who exist in my life and give me the opportunity to reflect through them.

Welcome to the Circle
